About the College 



STATE COLLEGE 



As the comprehensive public college of Southeastern 
Massachusetts, Bridgewater State College has a 
responsibility to educate the residents of Southeastern 
Massachusetts and the commonwealth, and to use its 
intellectual, scientific and technological resources to 
support and advance the economic and cultural life of 
the region and the state. 



development activities of public higher education in 
Southeastern Massachusetts, and introduces shared 
activities and programs among member institutions. 



While maintaining its historic focus on the prepara- 
tion of teachers, Bridgewater State College provides 
a broad range of baccalaureate degree programs 
through its School of Arts and Sciences, its School of 
Education and Allied Studies and its School of Busi- 
ness. At the graduate level, the college offers the 
Master of Arts and Master of Science in select disci- 
plines, as well as the Master of Arts in Teaching, the 
Master of Education, the Master of Public Administra- 
tion, the Master of Science in Management and the 
Master of Social Work. In addition, Bridgewater State 
College prepares current and future educators for 
postbaccalaureate and postmaster's licensure. 

Through the extensive information technology and 
distance education resources available at Bridgewater 
State College, including the unique John Joseph 
Moakley Center for Technological Applications, the 
college has made technology an integral component 
of teaching and learning on campus, and seeks to 
become a regional center for the enhancement of 
teaching through technology for PreK-12 teachers and 
college faculty. 

The college's growing number of innovative academic 
programs helps to ensure that Bridgewater State Col- 
lege students are prepared to think critically, commu- 
nicate effectively and act responsibly within a context 
of personal and professional ethics. For example, 
BSC's Academic Achievement Center, and particu- 
larly its first-year advising program, is often cited as 
a model for other institutions to follow. At the same 
time, the Adrian Tinsley Program for Undergraduate 
Research represents an unparalleled opportunity for 
students to work closely with faculty mentors and to 
present research and creative work at regional and 
national conferences. 



Bridgewater State College benefits greatly from Con- 
nect, its regional partnership with other public higher 
education institutions in the region - the University of 
Massachusetts at Dartmouth, Massasoit Community 
College, Bristol Community College and Cape Cod 
Community College. Connect functions as a vehicle 
for coordinating the academic, administrative and

History of the College 



BSC 



BRIDGEWATER 
STATE COLLEGE 



Bridgewater State College has grown from its first home - a 
single room in the basement of Bridgewater Town Hall in 
1840 - to become the largest of the nine Massachusetts State 
Colleges and the fourth largest of the 29 public colleges and 
universities in the commonwealth. 

More than 9,700 full-time and part-time undergraduate and 
graduate students are enrolled at the college; the full-time 
faculty numbers 278, which represents a net gain of 27 since 
fall 2002; and more than 90 undergraduate and graduate pro- 
grams are offered by the college's four schools (School of Arts 
and Sciences, School of Education and Allied Studies, School of 
Business and School of Graduate Studies). The college's physical 
plant of 235 acres includes 34 academic, administrative and 
residential buildings. 

Alumni and friends have raised more than $13 million to sup- 
port faculty and student research, a myriad of undergraduate 
and graduate scholarships, international study opportunities 
and award-winning publications. These private investments 
complement growing levels of public support for the institu- 
tion. In recent years, the college has committed $2.3 million 
for classroom upgrades and $7 million for an extensive library 
renovation. Two new 400-bed residence halls and a significant 
renovation and expansion of the campus' science building are 
scheduled for completion by the end of the decade. 

Vital to the long-term success of the institution is its recogni- 
tion throughout the state and nation as an educational leader 
in the use of technology to improve teaching and learning. The 
first step in that direction took place in 1992, when Bridgewater 
State College secured a $ 10-million federal grant - at the time, 
the largest federal grant ever awarded to a state college in the 
United States - to build what has become the John Joseph 
Moakley Center for Technological Applications. Today, all incom- 
ing students are required to carry and use notebook computers. 
For two consecutive years, Yahoo! Internet Life magazine named 
Bridgewater State College among the "100 Most-Wired Uni- 
versities and Colleges in America," and the college earned the 
number six spot on Intel Corporation's "Most Unwired College 
Campuses Survey" in 2005. 

Together, these developments have combined to strengthen the 
college's academic mission and expand its public service role. 
They were built on a series of initiatives that trace back to 1960, 
a watershed year in the life of the college. It was then that the 
college began making a full-scale transition from an exclusively 
teacher-training institution to a comprehensive liberal arts col- 
lege, offering students a variety of academic disciplines at the 
undergraduate and graduate level. 

Until that time, the college had been relatively small - approxi- 
mately 500 students - but enjoyed a national and international 
reputation for excellence in teacher preparation. The preparation 
of the next generation of quality teachers remains a top priority 



for Bridgewater State College, as evidenced by the institution's 
celebration of 50 years of accreditation by the National Council 
for Accreditation of Teacher Education. 

During its time as a normal school, countless faculty and admin- 
istrators nurtured the school carefully despite varying degrees 
of support from the state and overcame a host of difficult and 
sometimes dire situations, including a disastrous fire in 1924 
that destroyed several of the few buildings that existed on the 
campus at that time. 

While the college's earliest years were times of great challenge, 
the efforts never flagged to continue strengthening the curricu- 
lum, and each succeeding generation left Bridgewater State Col- 
lege stronger than the generation that went before. The thriving 
and dynamic institution we see today is the best evidence of the 
success of that enduring commitment.

information, please contact the appropriate office as 
indicated in each policy section. 



Policy on Nondiscrimination and 
Affirmative Action 

Bridgewater State College does not discriminate in admission 
to or access to, or treatment or employment in, any of its edu- 
cational programs or activities, including scholarships, loans and 
athletics, on basis of race, creed, religion, color, gender, marital 
status, age, sexual orientation, national origin, veteran status or 
disability. The college complies with executive orders 1 1246 and 
1 1375 as amended; the Civil Rights Art of 1964 as amended; 
the Civil Rights Restoration Art of 1 988; the Civil Rights Art of 
1991; Title IX of the Higher Education Amendments of 1972

Confidentiality of Student Records 

Bridgewater State College complies with the Family Educational 
Rights and Privacy Art (FERPA) of 1974 which governs access 
to and release of information contained in student education 
records. Students have the right to review their education 
records, request the amendment of their records if they believe 
that inaccuracies exist, and consent to disclosures of personally 
identifiable information contained in their records. Students also 
have the right to file written complaints with the U.S. Depart- 
ment of Education, Family Policy Compliance Office, concerning 
alleged violations of this act. Additional information regard- 
ing this art may be found in the Bridgewater State College 



Handbook and on the Web (www.bridgew.edu/registrar). For 
specific questions, please contact the Registrar's Office, Boyden 
Hall 003. 



The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Cam- 
pus Security Policy and Campus Crime 
Statistics Act 

Bridgewater State College complies with the Jeanne Clery Dis- 
closure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics 
Art, a federal law that requires colleges and universities across 
the United States to disclose information about crime on and 
around their campuses. 

Annual Report 

Colleges have to publish an annual report every year by October 
1 that contains three years of campus crime statistics and also 
certain security policy statements including sexual assault poli- 
cies, the law enforcement authority of campus police, and where 
students should go to report crimes. These statistics and policy 
statements are published annually in the Bridgewater State 
College Student Handbook. 

Crime Statistics 

Colleges must disclose crime statistics for the campus, public areas 
immediately adjacent to the campus, and certain non-campus facili- 
ties including Greek housing and remote housing. The statistics must 
be gathered from campus and local police, and college officials that 
have "significant responsibility for student and campus activities." 6 

Access to Timely Information 

Colleges are also required to provide "timely warnings" and a 
separate but more extensive public crime log. The Bridgewater 
State College Police Department issues "Campus Safety Alert 
Bulletins" whenever a major crime or other significant incident 
may potentially affect the safety or security of the campus com- 
munity. The Department also maintains a daily police log that is 
accessible to the public. The police log and any "Campus Safety 
Alert Bulletins" that are issued are also provided for publication 
in the college newspaper, The Comment. 



Hazing 

Hazing is unlawful in Massachusetts. Bridgewater State College 
supports the law. Hazing means "...any conduct or method 
of initiation into any student organization, whether on public 
or private property, which willfully or recklessly endangers the 
physical or mental health of any student or other person." Any 
person who is a principal organizer or participant in the crime 
of hazing shall be punishable by a fine of not more than $3,000 
or by imprisonment in a house of correction for not more than 
one year, or by both such fine and imprisonment. Please refer to 
the Bridgewater State College Handbook for the complete 
college policy statement on hazing.

Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act 
Amendments of 1989 

In compliance with the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act 
Amendments of 1989, Bridgewater State College has adopted 
and implemented programs to prevent the unlawful possession,

BRIDGE WATER 
STATE COLLEGE 



The Faculty 

Bridgewater State College has an outstanding faculty of women 
and men who are dedicated to teaching as a career, not just a 
vocation. Bridgewater State College professors are nationally 
recognized for their expertise in their fields of study. Ninety 
percent hold terminal degrees in their fields and many faculty 



members serve as consultants and advisers to corporations, 
non-profit organizations, school systems and government 
agencies. Other faculty provide leadership to professional 
societies and conduct pioneering research in their respective 
fields. Students may work closely with faculty through a variety 
of means including internships, undergraduate research or the 
Honors Program. 



LEARNING RESOURCES 



Clement C. Maxwell Library 

Conveniently located on West Campus, the Maxwell Library is a hub 
of activity. Not only does the library house a number of academic 
and administrative departments, faculty offices and classrooms, it 
also provides a variety of information resources and electronic tools 
for student and faculty use in a comfortable and inviting environ- 
ment. Open more than 90 hours each week, the library is staffed 
by highly qualified professionals and support personnel skilled at 
satisfying reference and research needs. 

The library's core collection of print, electronic and microformat 
materials is complemented by a substantial collection of videos, 
DVDs and compact discs. Students and faculty can discover the 
wealth of books, newspapers, periodicals, sound recordings and 
movie titles using the library's online public access catalog, Webster. 
With approximately 300,000 volumes, more than 31,000 periodical 
subscriptions and nearly 100 electronic bibliographic and full-text 
article databases, the library provides students and faculty with ac- 
cess to a breadth of information sources supporting their classroom 
and research needs. The library is dedicated to providing resources in 
all subject disciplines taught by the college's faculty. 

Because the library has both hard-wired and wireless networks, 
students can work anywhere in the building using their notebook 
computers. They can also use the desktop computers to search the 
catalog and Web site, http://www.bridgew.edu/library . Since most 
of these computers include a suite of applications such as Microsoft 
Word and Excel, students can find information resources and 
complete their course assignments at the same time. The library is a 
dynamic learning place. 



The Academic Achievement Center 

The Academic Achievement Center houses a variety of programs and 
services that support the adjustment to college and the academic 
success of students. The Academic Achievement Center is located on 
the ground floor of the Maxwell Library and includes the following 
programs: 

The Haughey Academic Advising Program 

The advising program serves freshmen and all other students who 
have yet to declare an academic major. Freshmen are introduced to 
the advising program during orientation and participate in a number 
of group and individual advising sessions throughout the academic 



A diverse array of academic programs, close association with 
a superb faculty, extensive online and technological resources, 
opportunities to learn and grow outside of the classroom, and 
a supportive network of advisers and counselors are the key 
elements of the academic environment at Bridgewater State 
College. 

A wide variety of service-learning, study abroad, cultural and 
social activities complement the learning process and add rich 
dimensions to the total academic experience. 

The college is committed to fostering student success. Faculty 
and staff strive to help each student work to achieve her or his 
full potential. The college's long tradition of academic excellence 
is built upon a foundation of challenging studies, an intellec- 
tually stimulating atmosphere, and a tradition of community 
service and partnership. 

Rapid advances in technology have created new opportunities 
for learning and require new skills in the ability to assimilate 
complex ideas. Bridgewater State College's undergraduate 
program provides fundamental knowledge in different areas of 
study as well as specialized, in-depth knowledge and skills in a 
major area. Each student acquires the knowledge and skills to 
communicate effectively, think logically, work quantitatively, and 
evaluate and assimilate information from a variety of sources. 
These skills are critically important to a life of learning and 
personal and professional growth. 

The core of the Bridgewater State College academic experience 
is the study of liberal arts. Every student, regardless of major, 
completes the core curriculum - a general course of study that 
provides a foundation for studies in each major. Distribution 
requirements include fine and performing arts, humanities, 
natural sciences and social/behavioral sciences. Most of the core 
curriculum is completed during the first two years of college, 
with the last two years focused on the major field of study. 

Emphasis is placed on reading, writing and oral communication 
skills. Business executives rank proficiency in communication as 
the most important skill an employee can possess. The ability to 
collect and integrate information, organize one's ideas, express 
these ideas logically and clearly, and respond to the ideas of 
others is rooted in language skills. 

The college has a rich and varied array of majors, minors and 
program options. For the undergraduate student, there is a 
broad spectrum of more than 100 such possibilities.

year. The focus of the advising program is on helping each student 
plan a program of study and make a successful and happy transition 
to college life. 

Enrichment Program 

A variety of services are available to help strengthen those skills most 
essential to effective learning both in college and throughout life. 

The program is based on the college's commitment to provide 
students with every opportunity to build upon strengths they have 
while correcting any deficiencies. This assistance is provided through 
specialized courses in English and mathematics and through re- 
sources such as Studying and Research Services, the Writing Studio, 
Mathematics Services, Communication Laboratory, Second Language 
Services and Disability Resources. Tutorial assistance is also provided. 

Students needing assistance may be referred by faculty or staff. 
A student may also request special help, which the college may 
provide. 

Learning Assistance Services - Students may receive as- 
sistance through the following services offered in the Academic 
Achievement Center: 

Communication Lab - Students are assisted with prepara- 
tion of oral presentations through services that teach strategies 
for topic selection, outline development and research, as well as 
through opportunities for presentation practice. 

Mathematics Services - Students participate in individual 
or small-group tutoring and have access to a variety of video and 
computer materials to support mastery of mathematics concepts 
and skills. 

Studying and Research Services - Students are helped to 
develop strategies for managing the demands of college courses 
and skills for completing demanding course assignments. 

Writing Studio - Students are provided individualized assis- 
tance to strengthen skills at all stages of the writing process. 

Introductory College Skills 

Courses - Students may be assigned to a class or to Introductory 
College Skills courses as a result of a review of the students' high 
school records, SAT scores and performance on various placement 
examinations generally given during Freshman Orientation. A stu- 
dent may also request this assistance, which the college is pleased 
to provide. 

The course or courses will be graded on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory 
basis and will not be calculated in the student's cumulative quality 
point average. Students assigned to any of these courses must com- 
plete the course successfully before attempting any other course in 
that area. The credit earned in any Introductory College Skills course 
may not be used to satisfy Core Curriculum Requirements nor may 



it be applied toward the minimum number of credits required for 
graduation in any major. 

*FRSK 100 Introductory College Skills: Intrusive Advis- 
ing -A specialized learning/advising program for freshmen offered

Computer Science, or the Mathematics Laboratory director, or the 
director of the Academic Achievement Center. 

*The credits earned in these particular courses may not be 
used to satisfy Core Curriculum Requirements, nor may they be 
applied toward the minimum number of credits required for 
graduation in any major. 

Continuing and Distance Education 

The Office of Continuing and Distance Education works closely with 
the academic schools to provide credit courses offered after 4:00 
PM, off campus or on weekends, during intersession and during the 
summer. The office is responsible for all undergraduate and graduate 
courses offered via distance learning. Continuing and Distance 
Education also provides non-credit on-line courses and certificate 
programs. 

Continuing Education opportunities are available for students who 
wish to further their own knowledge, gain professional expertise or 
for their own personal enjoyment. For more information, contact the 
Continuing and Distance Education Office at 508.531.2788 or visit 
the web site at www.bridgew.edu/CDE . 

Departmental Resources 

The college offers extensive computer facilities for instructional 
purposes and resources that range from a Zeiss Electron Microscope 
in the Department of Biological Sciences and an astronomy observa- 
tory in the Department of Physics to a writing studio offered by the 
Department of English. 

Facilities for weaving, ceramics, sculpture and painting are available 
in the Department of Art. A flight simulator is provided in the Depart- 
ment of Aviation Science. These and many other resources support 
the educational mission of the college and ensure that Bridgewater 
State College students can learn and apply contemporary knowledge 
and skills. 



The Undergraduate 
Academic Experience 



Disability Resources 

In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1 990 and 
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Bridgewater State 
College is committed to making its facilities, services, and programs 
accessible to all students. The staff of the Disability Resources Office 
assists students who have documented physical, psychological, 
and/or learning disabilities through the use of reasonable accom- 
modations. To this end, accommodations are determined individually 
based on the student's documentation and are designed to ame- 
liorate the student's functional limitations. Students whose primary 
disability is physical or psychological or who have multiple disabilities 
must make an appointment to see the disability resource coordina- 
tor. Those students whose primary disability is learning disabilities 
or attention deficit disorder must make an appointment to see the 
learning disabilities specialist. Disability Resources is located in the 
Academic Achievement Center in the Maxwell Library 508.531.1214 
or 508.531.611 3 TTY. 



TECHNOLOGICAL RESOURCES 

Bridgewater State College strives to remain in the forefront of edu- 
cational technology. A wireless network across campus, an array of 
technology-enhanced courses, classroom and laboratories that inte- 
grate technology, a robust residence network service, and a program 
for student notebook computers combine to give Bridgewater State 
College students an advantage in our technologically based society. 

The Computer Notebook Program 

The college's computer notebook program, initiated in fall 2004, 
builds upon the college's strengths in technology to engage all stu- 
dents at Bridgewater State College in a technology-rich educational 
experience and to help students develop skills that will be invaluable 
before and after graduation. Students can access the Internet using 
the college's wireless network, find and view course information and 
communicate with their classmates, and stay connected at home to 
keep up on e-mail and homework. 

Beginning with freshmen entering in the Fall of 2004 and applying 
to all subsequent entering classes, the college requires new full-time 
undergraduate students to own a notebook computer. This policy 
also applies to full-time transfer students whose accumulated credits 
place them in a graduating class for which notebooks are required. 
Students may purchase a computer on their own that meets the 
minimum specifications or may purchase their notebook through 
the college's agreement with a selected vendor offering competitive 
prices and the standard suite of office software. More information 
about the notebook program can be found at http://notebooks. 
bridgew.edu/ . 

The Online World: Blackboard and InfoBear 

Many of the courses at Bridgewater State College are enhanced by 
course Web sites developed through the Blackboard learning portal. 
Using their personal Blackboard account, students enroll in their 



course Web sites; gain access to course syllabi, materials and other 
information posted by the professors; engage in online discussions; 
collaborate with fellow students; view grades on assignments and 
tests in a course; and sometimes even take quizzes or prepare for 
exams in the online environment. 

InfoBear is a Web-based service provided by Bridgewater State Col- 
lege to allow quick and convenient access to each student's course 
enrollment, transcripts showing progress toward graduation, course 
grades and other information. Students also register for the follow- 
ing semester's courses through InfoBear, which is available through 
the college Web site and requires a student identification number 
and personal identification number. 

Web-Based Courses 

Learning in our society is no longer limited to the classroom, and it is 
important for lifelong learning for students to be able to learn from 
a variety of information sources. Bridgewater State College students 
have the opportunity to take courses delivered by a range of 
technologies. In addition to the many courses that use Blackboard to 
enhance the learning experience, the college also offers Web-based 
courses that are offered primarily over the Internet. Requirements 
include access to a notebook or desktop computer with printer and 
Internet connection, Web browsing capability and e-mail. Instruc- 
tors determine the mix of technologies that are employed in their 
courses. For most Web-based courses, a certain number of class 
meetings on campus may still be required. 

Wireless Network 

Bridgewater State College has provided wireless network connectiv- 
ity across the entire campus since fall 2001 . Staff, faculty, students 
and visitors with wireless-enabled notebook computers are able to 
connect to the network from anywhere on campus, including class- 
rooms, labs, offices, lounges, the library and outdoors. This enables 
users to access the Internet, read e-mail and conned to all of the 
college's online resources at any time. Due to wireless access points 
being placed throughout the college campus, students can walk 
from one side of the campus to the other while remaining connected 
to the network. 

Residence Network 

The residence network (ResNet) service provides all resident students 
with high-speed Internet access, reduced long distance telephone 
charges, voice mail, and cable TV which includes HBO, NESN and 
movie channels which air on Residence Life Cinema. Every month, 
1 6 recently released feature films are available for viewing. 

The ResNet program is handled by one payment each semester, 
which provides for all support needed to ensure the availability of 
these services. Further information on the ResNet program can be 
found at http://resnet.bridgew.edu/ .

John Joseph Moakley Center for 
Technological Applications 

The Moakley Center has been supporting the technology needs of 
Bridgewater State College students as well as the region's educators 
and businesses since its opening in 1995. The Moakley Center is 
a technology-integrated, 50,000-square-foot learning venue that 
focuses the power of technology on its guiding principle that educa- 
tion is a lifelong process. 

A 2 1 3-seat amphitheater features a full complement of the latest 
multimedia presentation technologies. Its television/video production 
facility grants access to digital editing and complete teleconference 
capabilities for students, businesses, and educators. Several multime- 
dia training rooms offer the latest in technology-enhanced learning. 

A variety of technology-based resources and programs are housed 
in the Moakley Center. These include the RiverNet Watershed Access 
Lab; CityLab; the Teaching and Technology Support Center; a digital 
music classroom; the Center for the Advancement of Research and 
Teaching (CART) and the GeoGraphics Laboratory. 



OPPORTUNITIES FOR LEARNING 
BEYOND THE CLASSROOM 



The Honors Program 

The Honors Program at Bridgewater State College encourages 
gifted and highly motivated students to reach their highest potential 
through critical thinking, scholarship and research. Small classes and 
close student-faculty relations provide for the vigorous and thorough 
exchange of ideas, while the program as a whole works to create an 
atmosphere fostering intellectual, artistic and academic achievement. 

The program does not require students to complete additional 
course work beyond the credit hours necessary for graduation; 
instead, students earn honors credits by taking honors sections of 
regular courses and/or honors colloquia during their freshman and 
sophomore years, and by undertaking individualized research pro- 
grams with faculty mentors during their junior and senior years. For 
information on funds available to support student research, see the 
"Adrian Tinsley Program for Undergraduate Research" below. 

Honors students meet with the director or assistant director once a 
semester to discuss their work in the program. For all honors work 
completed with a grade of B (3.0) or higher, students receive honors 
credit on their transcripts, and those who complete the program 
receive an honors degree - a goal worth serious effort both for the 
intrinsic satisfaction it brings and the advantages it provides at a 
time of strong competition for graduate and career opportunities. 

Commonwealth and Departmental Honors 

Students can participate in the Honors Program in two ways: by 
undertaking all of the requirements listed for Commonwealth 
Honors or by undertaking the requirements listed only under Junior 



and Senior Years for Departmental Honors. Commonwealth Honors 
thus runs throughout a student's undergraduate career, whereas 
Departmental Honors takes place only in the student's last two years. 
Commonwealth Honors includes the requirements for Departmental 
Honors; a student might undertake only Departmental Honors if he 
or she transferred to Bridgewater State College or developed an 
interest in pursuing honors work after the freshman year. 

A complete description of the opportunities and requirements for the 
Honors Program is available at www.bridgew.edu/HonorsProgram/ 
or the "Academic Programs" section of this catalog. 



The Adrian Tinsley Program for 
Undergraduate Research 

The Adrian Tinsley Program for Undergraduate Research (www. 
bridgew.edu/atp/ ) provides opportunities to Bridgewater State 
College undergraduates who wish to pursue research, scholarship, 
or artistic work under the guidance of a full-time faculty or librarian 
mentor. Through ATP, students design and develop research projects, 
learn new research skills, gain a more sophisticated understanding of 
the nature of academic research, and have opportunities to present 
their research and creative work at regional and national confer- 
ences. The outcome of the program is for students to graduate with 
the self-confidence, motivation and ability to conduct independent 
scholarship and research. 

The Tinsley Program supports a variety of undergraduate projects, 
conducted over the course of a semester, summer, or longer, involv- 
ing research or other forms of scholarship or artistic work in all dis- 
ciplines. The project may include laboratory research in the physical 
and life sciences; research in education, mathematics and business; 
scholarship in the humanities and social sciences; and stage perfor- 
mances, displays, or research in the visual arts and design. 

The Tinsley Program provides year-round support of undergraduate 
research through a variety of competitive opportunities: 

Summer Grants are awarded to students for work done over 
10 weeks of the summer on an in-depth, research project conducted 
under the supervision of a BSC faculty or librarian mentor. The grant 
includes a stipend awarded to the student, who may also apply for 
additional money for research expenses, and a stipend for the faculty 
or librarian mentor. 

Semester Grants are awarded each semester to offset the costs 
of research-related supplies and travel. 
Travel Grants support students who present their research at 
regional or national conferences, and fund travel, lodging, registra- 
tion and related fees. 

The National Conference on Undergraduate Re- 
search. Bridgewater State College traditionally sends a number of 
students to the National Conference on Undergraduate Research 
(NCUR) which is held in different cities each year. Students may use 
their travel grants to attend the conference and present their work. 
The Undergraduate Research Symposium takes place in 
April each year in the Moakley Center and showcases undergradu-

ate research through oral and poster presentations and displays. 
Faculty, staff, students, administration and guests are welcome. 
The Undergraduate Review: A Journal of Research and 
Creative Work publishes undergraduate research annually. For 
more information and submission guidelines, see www.bridgew. 
edu/atp/ur.htm . 

The Bridge: A Student Journal of Fine Arts 

The Bridge is a journal of fiction, non-fiction, poetry and art 
created and published by undergraduate students. Once each year, 
students are invited to submit their creative works, which are com- 
petitively selected by a student editorial board. For more informa- 
tion, contact The Bridge at: thebridgejournal@bridgew.edu, or at 
508.531.2983. 

Internships 

Internships consist of both on and off-campus work experience with 
a site supervisor/employer for academic credit under the guidance 
of a faculty member or non-credit through the Internship Office. 
Internships allow students to gain career-related experience while in 
college, an important factor in finding the first professional position. 

Students interested in internships should first check with their aca- 
demic department if they wish to receive credit. Credited internships 
are usually tied to a student's academic major. Students need to 
have completed a specific number of credit hours and go through a 
formal approval process before credit can be awarded. To determine 
possible internship sites, students should check with their academic 
department as well as the Office of Career Services's Internship 
Program, which maintains a database of internship opportunities in 
the region. Some students who choose to do an internship but do 
not need credit may want to meet with the career services internship 
coordinator to help locate opportunities, prepare for the internship 
interview, develop a cover letter and resume and learn important tips 
for getting the most from the experience. These services are offered 
to any student looking for an internship whether or not it is for 
credit. For further information, see the "Academic Programs" section 
of this catalog. 

Community Service and Service-Learning 

Bridgewater State College believes firmly in the relevance and 
importance of experiential learning in all of its academic programs. 
Service-learning is a teaching method that uses community service 
to help students gain a deeper understanding of course objectives, 
acquire new knowledge and engage in civic activity. A number of 
faculty incorporate service-learning into their courses. The college 
has established a center for Community Service and Service-Learning 
in the Campus Center to develop community contacts and collect 
and disseminate information on service-learning and volunteer 
opportunities. 

In addition, various student leadership programs at Bridgewater 
State College include community service components. Projects in- 
clude Habitat for Humanity, Jumpstart, Earth Day projects, domestic 



and international alternative spring break programs, Old Colony Big 
Sister Big Brother, programs that focus on homelessness and poverty, 
Meals on Wheels and many more. 

Children's Physical Developmental Clinic 

For more than 30 years, Bridgewater State College has sponsored 
the Children's Physical Developmental Clinic (CPDC), a nationally 
recognized academic program that fosters professional development, 
community service, and leadership qualities. The CPDC affords stu- 
dents from all majors a challenging opportunity for volunteering as 
clinicians to work with children and youth with disabilities between 
the ages of 1 8 months to 1 8 years. 

The aim of the clinic program is to improve the "total development" 
of children with disabilities by enhancing vital physical, motor, and 
aquatic skills and patterns. In addition, the program stresses the 
improvement of self-esteem of children by strengthening emotional- 
social aspects of their personalities through successful involvement 
in play, recreation and sport activities. 

A hundred students serve as clinicians and support staff each semes- 
ter making the CPDC the largest student organization on campus. 
Over the years, BSC students have determined that the CPDC not 
only augments their professional preparation; but, upon graduation, 
is most critical to them when seeking employment and entrance to 
graduate school. 

Exchange and International Programs 

Bridgewater State College students can study at many universities in 
the world, including those in countries such as Brazil, Spain, France 
and Portugal. Bridgewater State College has exchange programs in 
Brazil, Canada England, Ireland, Japan and Jordan. Students have 
the opportunity to study in Canada at more than a dozen institu- 
tions, including McGill University. Scholarships are available, and 
financial aid may be used for all travel programs. 

Through the National Student Exchange, students may spend up to 
one year attending a college or university in another state at the in- 
state tuition rate. The National Student Exchange directory describes 
more than 175 institutions involved in this program. For further 
information contact the Office of International Programs, www. 
bridgew.edu/international . 

International Study Tours 

Short-term faculty-led study tours to international locations are 
offered for undergraduate or graduate college credit. Each course is 
designed by a Bridgewater State College faculty member according 
to his/her regional and academic expertise, providing an opportunity 
for students to explore, firsthand, societies quite different from their 
own. These courses, which vary in length from 1 days to five weeks, 
are offered during winter intersession, spring break and summer. 
Study tour destinations have included Japan, Peru, Cuba and Ireland. 
The Bridgewater-at-Oxford program offers three weeks of summer 
study at Oxford University in England with a choice of political

CAMPUS LIFE 



Getting Started: Orientation for New Students 

Bridgewater State College's orientation program has been designed 
to introduce new students and their families to the campus com- 
munity. Through collaborative efforts between the divisions of 
Academic Affairs and Student Affairs, orientation provides programs 
that are conducive to the academic and developmental success of 
new students. The goals of orientation are to develop and coordinate 
programs that promote academic success, to enhance personal 
and social development, and to provide families and their students 
with information about services, support systems and issues facing 
college students. 

Orientation is divided into two different programs. The initial 
program in June is a comprehensive two-day overnight introduction 
to the college with an emphasis on placement testing, academic 



advising, and registration for fall classes. Students also have an 
opportunity to meet with faculty and staff and learn about the 
resources available at the college. A one-day concurrent family 
program provides parents with information about services, support 
systems and resources for their students. 

The second program is prior to the opening of classes in the fall 
when students are given the opportunity to meet new friends, learn 
the traditions of Bridgewater State College and receive assistance 
with transition to college life. 



College Events and Special Programs 

Literally hundreds of interesting programs, projects and events 
are available at Bridgewater State College throughout each year. 
Academic, cultural and social activities and programs are sponsored 
each year by students, faculty, staff and alumni of the college and 
include, but are certainly not limited to: Homecoming, Parents Day, 
Convocation, the Massachusetts Hall of Black Achievement at 
Bridgewater State College, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration 
and Breakfast, Awards for Excellence, Springfest and the Holiday 
Concert.

Cultural, Social, Athletic and Recreational 
Activities 

In addition to classroom instruction, Bridgewater State College offers 
students a full social, cultural, athletic, recreational and religious life. 
Art exhibits, lectures, concerts, movies, plays, workshops and sports 
events make for an active campus schedule. (Please refer to the college 
Web site www.bridgew.edu for a complete listing of clubs, organiza- 
tions and a calendar of campus events.)

Leadership, the Student Government Association, the Program Commit- 
tee and other organizations, members of the college community have 
opportunities to attend events featuring significant public figures and 
internationally acclaimed performing artists. 

The Art Building and Maxwell Library feature galleries where exhibits 
are displayed and the Rondileau Campus Center offers special pro- 
grams such as performances by the college Chorale Society and the 
Bridgewater State College Dance Company. For students who enjoy 
the theater, Bridgewater State College has much to offer. Major 
productions are presented by students in the Theater department 
throughout the year. 

Bridgewater State College has a strong athletic tradition, which 
has grown to include 21 intercollegiate varsity sports teams, a full 
range of intramural athletic programs, and a number of club sports 
programs. The Adrian Tmsley Center features a state-of-the-art

plus a full range of musical and special interest programming. Resi- 
dent students have access to a cable television local access channel 
offering college news and information. The Office of Public Affairs 
maintains a Campus Events Line 508.531.1768, a weekly recording 
of campus events. 



Religious Life 

The college supports student pursuit of spirituality both individually 
and in groups. The college provides groups of students the opportu- 
nity to form student organizations so they may utilize college facilities 
for meetings and events as well as request funding from the Student 
Government Association. The Catholic Center (122 Park Avenue) and 
the Christian Fellowship Center (29 Shaw Road) are independent 
entities that offer students both group and individual opportunities 
for worship and service. 



Services to Students 

Students face many decisions involving housing, finances, health, 
work, academic programs, post-undergraduate study and career 
goals. The Office of Student Affairs provides assistance in making 
these decisions through personal and career counseling, off- and 
on-campus housing information, health services, child care center, 
social activities, and student advocacy. The Bridgewater State Col- 
lege Student Handbook provides detailed information about these 
services. It is available at www.bridgew.edu/handbook/ .

Undergraduate Admissions 



For information about admission to graduate programs, please 
consult the "School of Graduate Studies" section of this catalog. 

Bridgewater State College seeks to admit students who give 
evidence of intellectual capacity, motivation, character and who 
have a record of scholastic achievement. An effort is made to attract 
candidates of diverse academic, economic, racial, religious and geo- 
graphic backgrounds. The admission requirements and procedures 
are designed to assist the college to select a freshman class from 
those applicants who can benefit from the educational opportunities 
at Bridgewater State College. 

Bridgewater State College does not discriminate on the basis of race, 
sex, sexual orientation, color, religion, age, or national or ethnic ori- 
gin. In addition, no otherwise qualified handicapped applicant shall, 
solely by reason of handicap, be excluded from admission. 



FRESHMAN ADMISSION 
REQUIREMENTS 

Application Form 

Each candidate should submit the Bridgewater State College ap- 
plication. The form, aside from collecting biographical data, allows 
the candidate to provide additional information concerning their 
academic and extracurricular interests. The college prefers students 
to apply online at the college's Web site, www.bridgew.edu, but also 
accepts the Common Application as well as other electronically 
formatted applications. 

High School Record 

Candidates must request an official transcript of their second- 
ary school record be sent directly to the Office of Admissions. The 
strength of the applicant's curriculum, grades, weighted grade point 
average and class rank as well as the level of competition in the 
applicant's high school are taken into consideration. 

The secondary program should include the following college prepa- 
ratory subjects: 



English (a) 
Mathematics (b) 
Science (c) 

History/Social Science I 
Foreign Language (e) 
Elective Units (f) 
Related Courses (g) 



4 units 
3 units

a. English must be college preparatory courses in composition and 
literature, which include the development of reading, writing 
and comprehension skills. 

b. Mathematics must be college preparatory courses in such 
subjects as algebra, geometry, trigonometry, elementary func- 



tions and mathematical analysis. A fourth year of mathematics 
is strongly recommended for students who plan to enter fields 
such as computer science, management science, mathematics, 
pre-engineering or the sciences. 

c. Two of the science courses must include laboratory work. 

d. This requirement should include one year of United States his- 
tory and government. 

e. Students are encouraged to elect additional years of foreign 
language study.

courses in English, mathematics, computer science, foreign 
language, natural and physical science, visual and performing 
arts and humanities. 

g. Students are encouraged to elect courses that are consistent with 
their personal, educational and career goals. These courses may 
include, but are certainly not limited to, such offerings as computer 
science, business, communications, psychology and sociology. 

Students graduating from vocational-technical high schools may 
substitute vocational-technical vocabulary course work for the 
foreign language requirement even if foreign language courses are 
offered in their high schools. Two vocational-technical courses may 
be used to fulfill the two required electives. 

Standardized Test Scores 

Candidates for admission to the freshman class must submit the 
results of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT Reasoning Test) or the 
American College Test (ACT). Candidates should have official score 
reports forwarded directly from the Educational Testing Program or 
the American College Testing Program during the academic year in 
which application is made to the college. 

For evaluation according to the provisions of Chapter 344, students 
with learning disabilities are expected to submit verification from 
their guidance office. In most cases, a copy of the student's current 
Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) is the appropriate verifying 
document. More specific documentation may be required for aca- 
demic advising and special services when students enroll. 

Chapter 344, Section 19 of the 1983 Acts and Resolves of the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts states that: "No resident of 
the commonwealth who has been diagnosed as being develop- 
mentally disabled, including but not limited to, having dyslexia or 
other specific language disabilities, by any evaluation procedure 
prescribed by chapter seventy-one B, or equivalent testing, shall 
be required to take any standardized college entrance aptitude 
test to gain admittance to any public institution of higher educa- 
tion in the commonwealth. Admission shall be determined by 
all other relevant factors excluding standardized achievement 
testing. " 



Undergraduate Admissions 




Candidates who graduated from high school three or more years 
prior to their planned entrance date are exempt from the standard- 
ized testing requirement. 

Freshman Admission Review 

Freshman admission to Bridgewater State College is selective. The 
Massachusetts Board of Higher Education has established minimum 
admission standards that require candidates to earn a "B" average 
for the required high school units mentioned above. Students whose 
average falls below this requirement can also meet the standard by 
the use of a sliding scale that begins with compensating SAT scores 
above 920, or an ACT composite score above 19. No student can 
be admitted whose high school grade point average falls below 
"C". Detailed information about the BHE admission standards can 
be found on their Web site, www.mass.edu. Admission decisions at 
Bridgewater are based upon the strength of the candidate's aca- 
demic profile as compared to the pool of applicants. Generally, more 
than 7,000 applications are reviewed for a freshman class of 1,400. 

Since Bridgewater State College seeks students who will contribute 
to the college in a variety of ways, other factors are considered in the 
admission decision. These include demonstrated leadership, partici- 
pation in extracurricular activities, motivation, maturity and special 
aptitudes and talents. Letters of recommendation and any additional 
supporting information a candidate wishes to submit are welcomed 
and encouraged. 

Special consideration is given to applicants out of high school for 
three years or more, students from educationally disadvantaged en- 
vironments, working adults, and candidates who exhibit exceptional 
potential. 

Interviews are not required. Students are encouraged to attend one 
of the many group information sessions offered throughout the year. 
Dates, times and a telephone reservation number are available in the 
Viewbook or on the college Web site, www.bridgew.edu. 

Additional information concerning admission procedures, application 
fees, standardized testing requirements for admission, notification 
date and deferred enrollment may be found in the Viewbook. Cop- 
ies may be obtained from the Office of Admissions - Gates House, 
Bridgewater State College, Bridgewater, MA 0232S. 



TRANSFER ADMISSION 
REQUIREMENTS 

Bridgewater State College welcomes applications from qualified 
transfer students. To qualify for transfer admission, a student must 
have earned 1 2 semester hours of transferable credit; otherwise the 
applicant is considered under freshman admission requirements. 

Transfer applicants will be evaluated on the basis of their previous 
college work and must request an official transcript to be sent from 



each college or university attended. Transfer applicants who have 
earned less than 24 transferable credits must also submit to an of- 
ficial high school transcript and standardized testing results. 

It is expected that candidates for transfer admission will be in good 
standing at the last institution attended and will have earned a 
cumulative grade point average of 2.2 or higher on a 4.0 scale. 
Students transferring less than 24 semester hours of credit must 
present a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 
scale. Special consideration may be granted for exceptional high 
school performance, evidence of maturity and motivation, or other 
extenuating circumstances and will be handled on an individual 
basis. Please note that these are minimum eligibility require- 
ments and do not guarantee admission to the college or to a 
specific degree program. 

Transfer credit toward the degree will be granted for course work 
completed at other accredited institutions of higher education. A 
minimum grade of C- is required for credit transfer. Courses that 
do not have a direct equivalent at Bridgewater State College 
may be counted as fulfilling elective requirements in the cur- 
riculum. Transfer students are required to fulfill the same degree 
requirements as any other student; however, any student who 
has completed the general education requirements of one of 
the other Massachusetts State Colleges will not be subject to 
additional general education requirements at Bridgewater State 
College. One half of the required courses in major and minor 
fields must be completed at Bridgewater State College. Students 
transferring from an accredited two-year institution are limited 
to 69 hours of transfer credit toward the degree. Students 
transferring from an accredited four-year institution are limited 
to 90 hours of transfer credit toward the degree. 

Grades for courses taken at an institution other than BSC are 
not used to compute a student's grade point average. Only 
courses acutally taken at BSC are used to calculate a student's 
BSC grade point average. 

Joint Admission Program 

Bridgewater State College participates with the Massachusetts 
Community Colleges, Dean College, and Quincy College in Joint 
Admission. This program guarantees admission to Bridgewater 
State College for transfers from participating institutions who 
are enrolled in pre-approved programs of study, providing the 
associate degree is completed. Joint Admission students must 
maintain a cumulative grade point average at the two-year col- 
lege of 2.5 or better to be eligible. 

Transfers indicate their desire to participate in Joint Admission 
by contacting either the Admissions Office or Transfer Office at 
their community college. A written application for Joint Admis- 
sion can be filed upon enrollment at the two-year participating 
institution. One semester prior to their planned enrollment at 
Bridgewater State College, Joint Admission students must file 
an Intent to Enroll form in lieu of a regular Bridgewater State

she has met the following requirements: 

a. Completed an associate's degree with a minimum of 60 
hours exclusive of developmental course work. 

b. Achieved a cumulative grade point average of not less than 
2.0 (in a 4.0 system) at the community college awarding

responsible for identifying on the transcript of the candidate 
that the student has fulfilled the compact specifications. 

II. Credits to be Transferred 

The 35 credits in Core Curriculum courses specified in section I 
will be applied toward the fulfillment of the Bridgewater State 
College general education requirements. 

A minimum of 25 additional credits will be accepted as transfer 
credits. These credits may be transferred as free electives, 
toward any additional Core Curriculum Requirements, toward 
the student's major, or any combination, as Bridgewater State 
College deems appropriate. 

Only college-level course credits consistent with the recom- 
mended standards set forth in the Undergraduate Experience 
publication are included under this compact. Credits awarded 
by the sending institution through CLEP, challenge examinations 
and other life experience evaluations for course credit may be 



included when the community college certifies that a student 
qualifies under this compact. 

III. Credits Beyond the Associate's Degree 

To complete the baccalaureate degree, a student who transfers 
under this compact may be required to take no more than 68 
additional credits unless: 

a. The student changes his or her program upon entering 
Bridgewater State College, or 

b. The combination of additional Core Curriculum Require- 
ments, if any, and the requirements of the student's major 
at the receiving institution total more than 68 credits. 

Under these circumstances, transfer students will be subject to 
the same requirements as students who began their under- 
graduate education at Bridgewater State College. 

IV. Admission to Competitive Majors or Programs 

If because of space or fiscal limitations the receiving institu- 
tion does not admit all qualified applicants to a given major or 
program, the receiving institution will use the same criteria for 
applicants who are transfer students under this compact as it 
does for its native students. 

V. Student Appeals 

A student who believes that the provisions of this compact have 
not been applied fairly has the right to appeal. 

Initially, differences of interpretation regarding the award of 
transfer credit shall be resolved between the student and the 
receiving institution. If a difference remains unresolved, the 
student shall present his or her evaluation of the situation to 
the institution from which the student is transferring. Represen- 
tatives from the two institutions shall then have the opportunity 
to resolve the differences. 

Absent a satisfactory resolution, differences of interpretation may be 
presented to the State-Wide Transfer Coordinating Committee.

Students for whom English is a second language are evaluated 
and tested on their English proficiency upon admission to the 
College. Based on transcripts, Accuplacer, TOEFL and SAT scores, 
as well as pre-college writing samples and other valid methods 
of language proficiency assessment, students are placed in an 
appropriate level of English as a Second Language (ESL) and 
writing. Depending on placement, students will complete to 6 
credits in ESL' Students can take 3 additional credits in ESL. 

Students are exempt from taking ESL courses based on the following 
criteria: 

• reading score of 68 or above on the Accuplacer 

• SAT verbal score of 450 or above 

• GPA of 3.05 or above from a high school in the United 
States or another English-speaking country 

• TOEFL score of or above 550 (paper-based) or 173 
(computer-based) 

Program for Registered Nurses 

Provisions have been made for graduates of three-year diploma 
schools of nursing to complete programs leading to degrees in any 
of the academic majors being offered at the college. 

While encouraging registered nurses to pursue degree work for per- 
sonal enrichment, the college supports the guidelines of the National 
League of Nursing for the professional education of nurses. These 
guidelines caution nurses whose career goals include the opportuni- 
ty to assume supervisory and/or teaching responsibilities in the field 
of nursing, that degree programs to be pursued should be taken only 
at those institutions which offer degrees in nursing education. 

Through this special admissions program, students accepted to the 
college are granted 60 credit hours for their school or nursing work. 
Where applicable, these credits may be used to meet core curricu- 
lum, major or elective requirements. As with all others transferring 
into the college, registered nurses are expected to meet the same 
degree requirements as outlined in the "Undergraduate Academic 
Policies" section of this catalog. 



Note: See Catalog Web Addenda at www.bridgew.edu/catalog/addenda/ as that information supersedes the published version of this catalog.

Undergraduate Admissions 



New England Regional Student Program 

Bridgewater State College participates in the New England Regional 
Student Program. The program is administered by the New England 
Board of Higher Education and is designed to permit qualified New 
England residents to study at the in-state tuition rate plus surcharge 
tuition in certain programs at Bridgewater State College. 

Information about the program can be obtained from the Bridgewa- 
ter State College Admissions Office. 

Advanced Standing 

Advanced standing with college credit is granted to entering 
students who have demonstrated college-level proficiency through 
established procedures. 

Advanced Placement Program 

Bridgewater State College participates in the Advanced Placement 
Program of the College Board, providing academic credit for stu- 
dents qualified for advanced placement standing. Those interested 
should take the College Board Advanced Placement tests and have 
the results submitted to the Off ice of Admissions for evaluation. 
Students scoring three, four or five receive placement and credit from 
the college. 

College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) 

Bridgewater State College awards academic credits that students 
may earn though the College Level Exam Program (CLEP) of the 
College Board. 



Credit earned with CLEP examinations may be applied towards fulfill- 
ing Core Curriculum Requirements, major, and elective requirements. 
The chart in this section provides information about the specific CLEP 
examinations and equivalent BSC courses. 

Credit by CLEP is regarded as transfer credit and is not reflected in 
the BSC grade point average. CLEP transcripts are regarded as four- 
year-school transfer credit and are counted towards the maximum 
allowance of transfer credit. CLEP credit does not satisfy residency 
requirements for financial aid, student housing, or student medical 
insurance purposes. 

CLEP credit may not be awarded if equivalent course work is com- 
pleted either prior to or later than the equivalent CLEP examination or 
if the CLEP equivalent already appears on a student transcript. CLEP 
credit may not be retroactively substituted for requirements waived or 
satisfied though prior academic arrangement. 

Bridgewater State College follows the American Council of Education 
(ACE) recommendation that a student achieve a minimum score of 
50 to earn credit for most CLEP examinations. Please note that some 
exams require higher scores to earn full credit. 

Students may arrange to take CLEP examinations at any of the 
national test centers, including Bridgewater State College. Those 
interested in taking CLEP examinations at BSC should contact the 
Office of Testing Services in the Academic Achievement Center at 
508.531.1780.

Second Degree Option 

A student who has earned a bachelor's degree at Bridgewater State 
College or at another accredited institution may be admitted to the 
college to pursue an additional bachelor's degree in a field of study 
substantially different from the initial degree program. 

That student should make application through the Undergraduate 
Admissions Office, providing official transcripts from all previous 
colleges other than Bridgewater State College. Please note that 
second bachelor degree candidates are subject to transfer admission 
deadlines of April 1 for fall entrance and November 1 for spring 
entrance. 



Admission is dependent on approval of the department in which 
the student wishes to pursue a major. Certain departments may 
recommend that the student pursue a graduate program with some 
prerequisite courses rather than a second bachelor's degree. Some 
majors have specific admission requirements and/or limited space, 
which may result in a student not being accepted into the desired 
major. 

For second undergraduate degree graduation requirements, see the 
"Undergraduate Academic Policies" section of this catalog.

Return of Financial Aid Policy 

Students who receive financial aid and withdraw from the 
college during the semester may not be eligible for their entire 
financial aid award. A revised financial aid award notice will be 
mailed to students once awards have been adjusted. Bridge- 
water State College must return federal and state grants, loans 
and scholarships to the federal or state government based on 
the student's length of enrollment. The student may retain only 
a pro-rated portion of the federal and state aid awarded based 
on the length of the term and the student's withdrawal date. 
The remainder of the student's financial aid must be returned 
by BSC to the Department of Education or Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts. If the student received a cash disbursement of 
aid, he or she may owe a repayment to BSC or to the federal 
government. 

The Return of Title IV Funds requirement remains in effect until 
the 60 percent point of the semester. See Web site for actual 



30 



Tuition and Fees 



dates in the current semester. After those dates the student may 
retain all financial aid. 



Bridgewater State College uses the Federal Return of Title IV 
Funds formula and dates to calculate the amount of institution- 
al scholarship/grant funds a withdrawn student may retain. 

It is very possible that a student who receives financial aid 
and withdraws during the Return of Title IV funds period 
will owe a balance to the BSC Student Accounts Office and 
may be required to repay funds to the U.S. Department of 
Education. 



All undergraduate, matriculated (degree seeking) students who 
withdraw from school must notify, in writing, both the Academic 
Achievement Center and the Financial Aid Office. 

All graduate, matriculated (degree seeking) students who with- 
draw from school (program) must notify, in writing, both the 
School of Graduate Studies and the Financial Aid Office. 

Note: Federal, State or Institutional regulations, and/or 
action by the Board of Higher Education may neces- 
sitate revision to the above Return of Financial Aid 
Policy. n 



Note: See Catalog Web Addenda at www.bridgew.edu/catalog/addenda/ as that information supersedes the published version of this catalog.

Financial Aid 



The mission of the Financial Aid Office at Bridgewater State 
College is to assist students and parents in financing their 
education. Our main goal is to ensure access for all who desire 
to pursue higher education. 

Financial aid award packages may consist of a combination of 
resources such as grant, scholarship, tuition waiver, work-study 
and loan. An award package is always dependent on the 
availability of funds from the state and federal government. 
Awarding of funds is based on "need" which is the difference 
between the cost of attendance (COA) and the Expected Family 
Contribution (EFC). 

The cost of attendance includes direct expenses such as tuition 
and fees, and also incorporates estimated costs for books 
and supplies, room and board, transportation and personal 
expenses. The expected family contribution is determined by us- 
ing the federal need analysis formula when the Free Application 
for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is completed and processed. 
The difference between the two is the "need" which is met by 
financial aid funds. 

COST OF ATTENDANCE 
- FAMILY CONTRIBUTION 
= FINANCIAL NEED 

All students who desire consideration for financial aid funds 
must complete the FAFSA each year. FAFSA on the Web (www. 
fafsa.ed.gov) is the easiest and fastest way to apply. The entire 
process can be completed electronically when both the student 
and the parent apply for a Personal Identification Number (PIN), 
which allows the family to sign the application electronically. 
Apply at: www.pin.ed.gov. The PIN permits a family to sign and 
access the FAFSA year after year; there is no need to reapply for 
a PIN each year. 

For those who prefer, the paper version of the FAFSA may be 
obtained from the financial aid office, high school guidance 
office, or local college. Processing a paper version of the FAFSA 
may take up to four weeks. The financial aid office strongly 
encourages families to file early, and to file on line whenever 
possible. 

To obtain priority consideration for financial aid funds, the 
federal government must receive the student's completed FAFSA 
by March 1 st of the award year. This is a receipt date, not a 
postmark date. Electronic applications are considered received 
when you click the "submit" button at the end of the applica- 
tion process from your computer. Applicants should print a copy 
of their confirmation page when applying on line. 

Applications are accepted after the March 1 st priority date, but 
awards will be made on a funds-available basis. Applications for 
the spring semester are accepted on a rolling basis. 



Students must reapply for financial aid funds each year they 
attend the College. Although the amount and type of aid of- 
fered may be changed due to funding availability and program 
guidelines, an applicant will continue to be eligible as long as 
financial need is demonstrated and the student maintains satis- 
factory academic progress. Please see the section of Satisfactory 
Academic Progress and Student Financial Aid. 

The college has strict guidelines regarding refunds of tuition 
and the distribution of financial aid funds for students who 
withdraw from the institution. Please refer to the refund section 
of this catalog. 

Financial aid is available for study abroad.

Satisfactory Academic Progress and 
Student Financial Aid 

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) is a federal policy that 
measures two components: quantitative and qualitative prog- 
ress. 

The quantitative portion requires students attending an institu- 
tion that awards federal financial aid be making progress toward 
the completion of their degree within a reasonable period of 
time. All attempted credits count toward the calculation, and 
withdrawals, failures, and incomplete grades will all negatively 
impact a student's progress. The state of Massachusetts and 
Bridgewater State College's institutional financial aid programs 
adhere to the same standards. Since standards are applied to 
all students, one does not necessarily have to be a financial aid 
applicant to fall under the auspices of this regulation. 

The maximum time frame for completing an undergraduate 
degree is 1 50 percent of the published length of the program. 
For programs that are 1 20 credits, a student would be allowed 
to attempt no more than 180 credits before completing the 
requirements for their degree. Generally, for full time students, 
this is equal to six years. Students who have not completed their 
degree within this parameter would be deemed ineligible for 
financial aid. 

Since a student has 1 50 percent of the published length of a 
program to complete their degree, one must complete at least 
75 percent of all credits attempted to maintain compliance 
with the satisfactory progress standards. Courses that do not 
carry credit, but are successfully completed, are not considered 
punitive under the calculation. Progress is measured over time, 
and the entire academic record is reviewed at the end of each 
academic year. Repeating classes for which a passing grade has 
already been earned will negatively impact a student's progress 
since no additional credits are earned, but additional credits are

attempted. Students who do not meet the college's standards 
are notified of the loss of financial aid eligibility prior to the start 
of the next semester. When a student is notified of their ineligi- 
bility, they are also given the opportunity to appeal, in writing, 
based on mitigating circumstances. Summer classes are included 
as attempted and/or completed credits in the following academic 
year (unless a special condition is imposed by the Satisfactory 
Progress Committee). 



student has met the quantitative component of the Satisfactory 
Academic Progress policy, no further appeal is required, and 
financial aid can be reinstated. However, if the quantitative stan- 
dard has not been met, the student must present an additional 
appeal to the satisfactory progress committee.

All appeals are reviewed by the Satisfactory Progress Committee, 
whose representatives are from the Registrar's Office, Academic 
Achievement Center, and the Financial Aid Office. Decisions by 
the committee are final. A student whose appeal is approved 
will have their financial aid eligibility reinstated on a probation- 
ary basis. These students must be especially diligent in com- 
pleting all attempted credits until compliance with the policy 
is reestablished. In some cases, a student's eligibility may be 
regained for only one semester, with the stipulation that the 
student successfully complete all attempted credits to regain 
eligibility for the next semester. 

Transfer credits are not evaluated toward the BSC comple- 
tion rate that is performed at the end of each academic year. 
However, transfer credits will affect the maximum timeframe in 
which a student must earn their degree. For example, a student 
who transfers 60 credits toward an undergraduate degree would 
presumably have to earn 60 more credits to complete their BSC 
degree. Using the federal 1 50 percent rule, the student would be 
allowed to attempt only 90 more credits before losing financial 
aid eligibility. 

The qualitative component of the policy deals with prog- 
ress as it relates to the student's Grade Point Average (GPA). 
Satisfactory academic progress standards adhere to the College's 
policy for academic standards. (See chart below). Students who 
are academically separated from the college are not eligible for 
financial aid funds, unless they successfully appeal to the appro- 
priate academic dean and are subsequently reinstated. If such a 



Eligibility can be regained in two ways: a student who is deemed 
ineligible may find an alternative funding source, continue 
to take classes, and regain eligibility on their own over time, 
or a student may instead decide to appeal to the Satisfactory 
Progress Committee. Students who submit their appeal by the 
deadline that is communicated in their letter will retain their 
on-time status if their FAFSA was received by the published pre- 
ferred deadline of March 1 and all other required documents, if 
any, are submitted to the financial aid office in a timely manner. 
Appeals received after the deadline, if approved, will be awarded 
on a funds-available basis regardless of the FAFSA receipt date. 
Appeals will be reviewed throughout the academic year. 

This policy may be subject to changes or updates. The policy on 
the financial aid web page supersedes the policy in this catalog. 

Student Employment 

In addition to the Federal Work Study Program, Bridgewater 
State College provides opportunities for employment both 
on and off campus through the Student Employment Center 
located in Boyden Hall. Services of the center are open to all 
Bridgewater State College students regardless of financial aid

Core Curriculum Requirements 

Bridgewater State College's Core Curriculum was developed to 
serve as the educational foundation that all Bridgewater State 
College students will build on to complete their program of 
study. The Core Curriculum features a skills-centered, outcomes- 
based distribution model of general education that allows 
students a wide choice of courses and the flexibility to integrate 
the requirements of their major with the broader, liberal educa- 
tion that is required of responsible citizens of the 2 1 st century. 
Students who complete the BSC Core Curriculum will learn a 
significant body of factual knowledge as well as understand the 
intellectual foundations, conceptual frameworks, and method- 
ologies of the major academic disciplines. 

The BSC Core Curriculum is composed of four main 
areas: 

1. Skill Requirements: All students are required to demon- 
strate proficiency in the skill areas of writing, logical reason- 
ing, mathematical reasoning, and spoken communication. 

2. Core Distribution Requirements: All students will learn 
about the arts, humanities, the natural and social and 
behavioral sciences, global culture, multiculturalism, applica- 
tion of quantitative skills and the U.S. and Massachusetts 
Constitutions. 



Note: See Catalog Web Addenda at www.bridgew.edu/catalog/addenda/ as that information supersedes the published version of this catalog.

3. Seminars: The First and Second Year Seminars are key 
features of the BSC Core Curriculum. These topic courses 
will allow students to explore an area of interest in a small, 
discussion-oriented course. The First Year Seminar is a writing 
intensive course designed to engage the student in college- 
level learning. The Second Year Seminar is either speaking 

or writing intensive and will engage students in the connec- 
tions between classroom learning and the world. 

4. Requirements in the major: To connect the Core 
Curriculum with each major, students will complete one 
writing intensive course in their major and will be able to 
demonstrate information literacy and technology proficiency 
in their major.

XXXX 199 First Year Seminar (CFYS) 

XXXX 298 Second Year Seminar (Speaking Intensive) 
(CSYS) 

or 

XXXX 299 Second Year Seminar (Writing Intensive) 
(CSYS) 

Bridgewater State College considers any student with 
fewer than 24 credit hours to be a 1 st year student and 
any student with 24-53 earned credit hours to be a 2 nd 
year student. 

Please note: 

• Only certain BSC courses have been approved for use in 
the Core Curriculum. Please see http://www.bridgew. 
edu/corecurriculum for a complete list of approved courses 
and for the most up to date information regarding the Core 
Curriculum. 

• Students who entered BSC in the fall of 2006 or later as first 
time students to BSC MUST follow the new Core Curriculum. 

• Students who matriculated at BSC prior to fall 2006 may 
petition to follow an earlier catalog. 

• Students who transfer more than 23 credits to BSC will have 
the CFYS (First Year Seminar) waived. Students who trans- 
fer more than 53 credits will have the CSYS (Second Year 
Seminar) waived. However, transfer students will still need to 
fulfill the Writing Intensive and Speaking Intensive require- 
ments. 

• Appeals will be heard by the Associate Dean of Arts and 
Sciences. 

• Transfer students who believe that they have met the 
outcomes for a BSC Core requirement by taking a course 
at another college should submit a Core Curriculum 
Substitution form to the Office of the Dean of Arts and 
Sciences. 

Directed Study 

The college permits students to pursue their interests through 
directed study. Such an undertaking involves independent 
thinking, hard work and creativity along with the guidance 
and help of a faculty member. The end result should be a paper 
or project accepted by the faculty member working with the 
student. Directed Study, which is limited to three credits with a 
maximum of six credits for graduation purposes and is primarily 
for upperclassmen, is available for the pursuit of independent 
work. Application forms for directed study are available from 
the student's major department and should be submitted to the 
department chairperson for his/her recommendation and then 
forwarded to the appropriate school dean for approval. 



Internship, Practicum, and Field Experience 

A number of departments within the college offer students the 
opportunity to enroll in an internship, practicum or field experi- 
ence for academic credit. Such experiences provide students, 
usually in their third or fourth year, the chance to undertake a 
supervised practical experience in their field of study. Normally, 
field experience opportunities are available only during the fall 
and spring semesters. 

Students interested in such a field experience have the option of 
1) consulting with their faculty adviser for details on programs 
available through the department, or 2) developing their own 
program proposals, subject to the approval of the department. 
If the field experience desired is proposed by the student, it is 
the student's responsibility to locate a faculty member who will 
provide the necessary supervision. 

Application and Selection 

Application forms for a field experience are available from the 
student's department. The completed form must be filed with 
the chairperson of the department in which the field experience 
is to be undertaken no later than the end of the first quarter of 
the semester prior to the semester in which the field experience 
is to be undertaken. 

The department will screen all applications in order to select 
students best suited for the positions available. The chairperson 
will forward the application forms to the dean of the appropri- 
ate school for approval. The completed form must be received 
by the registrar's office prior to the end of the drop/add period 
to enroll the student. 

Applicants to internships must have completed at least 54 
credits with a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA. Departments may 
set higher standards. 

Supervision and Grading 

Supervision, evaluation and grading of a field experience is the 
responsibility of a faculty member in the department offering 
the program. A student may be removed from the program if, in 
the judgement of the faculty supervisor, it is in the best interests 
of the student, agency and/or college. Grades are based on writ- 
ten evaluations from both the faculty supervisor and the agency 
supervisor. 

Credit 

From 3 to 1 5 credits in field experience may be earned and 
applied toward graduation requirements. The number of credits 
which may apply toward the major will be determined by 
each department. A minimum of 45 clock hours in the field is 
required for each credit hour granted.

Undergraduate Academic Programs 



Compensation 

Normally, students may not be compensated except for minimal 
amounts to cover such expenses as travel. 

Honors Program 

The Honors Program at Bridgewater State College encourages 
gifted and highly motivated students to reach their highest 
potential through critical thinking, scholarship and research. 
Small classes and close student-faculty relations provide for the 
vigorous and thorough exchange of ideas, while the program as 
a whole attempts to create an atmosphere fostering intellectual, 
artistic and academic achievement. 

The program does not require students to complete additional 
coursework beyond the 1 20 credit hours necessary for gradua- 
tion; instead, students earn honors credits, as described below, 
by taking honors sections of regular courses and/or honors 
colloquia during their freshman and sophomore years, by com- 
pleting honors work in certain 300 and 400 level courses during 
their junior and senior years, and by researching and writing an 
honors thesis in their senior year. 

Honors students are required to meet with either of the direc- 
tors once a semester to discuss their work in the program. 

For all honors work completed with a grade of B (3.0) or higher, 
students receive honors credit on their transcripts, and those 
who complete the program receive an honors degree - a goal 
worth serious effort both for the intrinsic satisfaction it brings 
and the advantage it provides at a time of strong competition 
for graduate and career opportunities. 

Commonwealth Honors 

Students can participate in the Honors Program in two ways: 
by undertaking all of the requirements listed below for Com- 
monwealth Honors or by undertaking the requirements listed 
only under "Junior and Senior Years" for Departmental Honors. 
Commonwealth Honors runs throughout a student's undergradu- 
ate career, whereas Departmental Honors takes place only in the 
student's last two years. Commonwealth Honors includes the re- 
quirements for Departmental Honors; a student might undertake 
only Departmental Honors if he or she transferred to Bridgewater 
State College or developed an interest in pursuing honors work 
after the freshman year. 

Freshman and Sophomore Years (for Common- 
wealth Honors) 

Students seeking Commonwealth Honors must accumulate a 
total of 1 2 credits of honors level work at the 100-200 level 
preferably, but not necessarily, during their first two years. Honors 
credit at this level can be earned in two ways: by taking four 
three-credit honors courses or by taking a mix of three-credit 
honors courses and one-credit honors colloquia totaling 1 2 
credits. Both honors courses and colloquia are described in the 
Course Schedule issued shortly before registration. 



Honors courses: Honors courses are specially-designed 
sections of regular 100-200 level courses. Most fulfill Core Cur- 
riculum credit and thereby impose no additional requirements for 
graduation. These courses offer small class size (usually capped at 
1 5 students), more active discussion, greater student and faculty 
interaction, more challenging material, and often an emphasis on 
writing and oral presentation. Honors courses have recently been 
offered in art, biology, chemistry, English, history, mathematics, 
philosophy, political science and psychology. 

Honors colloquia: Honors colloquia carry one academic 
credit, meet once a week for 50 minutes, and culminate in a 
paper or scientific project which provides the major part of the 
grade. Minimum enrollment in each colloquium is two and-the 
maximum is 12. Although most colloquia stand on their own, 
some are attached to regularly offered courses which form part 
of the student's normal program. Colloquia offer intense study 
in a wide range of topics not usually found at this level. 

Whether in honors classes or colloquia, students are expected 
to maintain a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.3. 
Students whose GPA falls between 3.3 and 2.7 may remain 
in the program for a further semester after which they will be 
dropped if the deficiency is not corrected; students whose GPA 
falls below 2.7 will be dropped from the program at that time. 
In either case, whenever the GPA returns to 3.3, students may 
reenter the program. Although the honors directors have discre- 
tion to retain students in the program who do not meet these 
requirements, by the time of graduation students must have 
attained a cumulative GPA of 3.3. 

Junior and Senior Years 

Students who have completed the 1 2 credits of honors work 
described above and who have attained a cumulative GPA of 
at least 3.3 are eligible to continue by entering a Departmental 
Honors program or, if the student's major does not offer Depart- 
mental Honors, by undertaking, through the Honors Center, an 
individually designed interdisciplinary honors program (both of 
which require an application, either to the Departmental Honors 
Committee or the Honors Center). 

The following departments offer Departmental Honors: 



Accounting and Finance 
Art 

Aviation Science 

Biology 

Chemistry 

Communication Studies 
English 

Foreign Languages 
History 

Mathematics and 
Computer Science 



Movement Arts, Health

Departmental Honors 

Students wishing to undertake only upper-division Honors work 
can apply to their major department to do departmental honors 
around the end of the sophomore or beginning of the junior 
year, and should complete those requirements listed above 
under "Junior and Senior Years." For specific requirements and 
expectations, please consult your Departmental Honors Com- 
mittee or request a copy of the Departmental Honors Programs 
brochure from the Honors Center. 



Scholarships 

Bridgewater State College offers a variety of academic scholar- 
ships ranging from presidential and Tsongas scholarships, ad- 
ministered by the Office of Admissions, to the more specialized 
scholarships described on the Student Affairs Web site www. 
bridgew.edu/student affairs. Of particular interest to students in 
the Honors Program is the Adrian Tinsley Program for Under- 
graduate Research which offers generous financial support for 
students' research. Full details concerning this program are 
available in the Honors Center. 



Honors Center 

Students in the program have access throughout the year to 
the Honors Center in the Academic Achievement Center on 
the ground floor of Maxwell Library. Designed as a study area 
and meeting place for students in the honors program, the 
center has large work tables, comfortable chairs, computers, a 
refrigerator and a lending library. Students will also find copies 
of past honors theses written by BSC honors students; informa- 
tion about Fulbright, Goldwater and other national scholarships; 
and announcements of national and regional undergraduate 
research conferences in which honors students are encouraged 
to participate. The center is open from 9 am to 5 pm on Monday 
through Friday during the academic year. 



Honors Program Dinner 

At least once each year the program hosts a dinner for students and 
faculty featuring an informal talk by an off-campus speaker of note. 
Recent speakers have included Congressman Barney Frank; historian 
and activist Howard Zinn; Thomas Payzant, superintendent of schools 
in Boston; Jack Beatty of the Atlantic Monthly; and Jeff Jacoby of 
The Boston Globe. The honors program also hosts extracurricular 
activities such as movie nights, theater excursions, and other events 
suggested by students in the program. 



Honor Societies 

Several departments invite academically talented students to 

join nationally recognized honor societies. For information on 

the following, contact the department chairperson. 

Alpha Mu Alpha (Marketing) 

Eta Sigma Gamma, Delta Pi Chapter (Health) 

Kappa Delta Pi (Education) 

Lambda Pi Eta (Communication Studies) 

Omicron Delta Epsilon (Economics) 

Phi Alpha, Beta Chi Chapter (Social Work) 

Phi Alpha Theta (History) 

Pi Kappa Delta (Forensics) 

Pi Mu Epsilon (Mathematics) 

Pi Sigma Alpha, Pi Upsilon Chapter (Political Science) 

Psi Chi (Psychology) 

Sigma Gamma Epsilon, Zeta lota Chapter (Earth 
Science and Geography) 



Honors work at this level emphasizes independent study and 
research in the major, or combination of majors if interdisciplin- 
ary. Students are required to take nine credits of honors work 
at the 300-400 level and can do so by combining Honors 
Contracts and the Honors Thesis. A student can earn honors 
credit in an upper-division course by submitting an Honors Con- 
tract, in which the student and instructor devise an advanced 
project within the course that emphasizes independent research 
on a particular subject. The student then completes a special 
advanced project, under the instructor's direction, in conjunction 
with the course. As a senior, the student researches and writes 
an honors thesis (earning three credits for "XXXX485 Honors 
Thesis") under the direction of a faculty member on a one-on- 
one basis; this can be done for either one or two semesters 
(we encourage two semesters, but students should discuss this 
with their Departmental Honors Committee and thesis adviser). 
Whether the thesis qualifies the student to graduate with honors 
will be determined by the Departmental Honors Committee or, 
where appropriate, by the student's Interdisciplinary Honors Com- 
mittee. For many students the honors thesis is the intellectual high 
point of the undergraduate experience - fascinating and exciting 
in its own right, and valuable as a preparation for graduate school 
or professional employment. 

Credit requirements for Commonwealth Honors may be sum- 
marized as follows: 

• At least 12 honors credits at the 100 or 200 level in three- 
credit honors classes and one-credit honors colloquia; 

• Nine credit hours in honors course work at the 300 or 
400 level obtained by undertaking honors contracts (three 
credits each semester). Forms for honors contracts and the 
honors thesis can be picked up from the Honors Center or 
your department office and should be filled out, signed, and 
returned to the Honors Center during the first two weeks of 
the semester); 

• A public presentation of the thesis work at some campus

Research Symposium held each April. 

Students who complete the program will have the phrase "with 
Commonwealth Honors" entered on their transcripts.

BRIDGE WATER 
STATE COLLEGE 



Undergraduate Academic Policies 



ACADEMIC INTEGRITY AND 
CLASSROOM CONDUCT 

Students are admitted to Bridgewater State College with the 
expectation that they will accept and abide by the standards of 
conduct and scholarship established by the faculty, administra- 
tion and student governing boards. The college reserves the right 
to require students to withdraw who do not maintain acceptable 
academic standing. The college also reserves the right to dismiss, 
with due process, students who do not meet the requirements 
of conduct and order or whose behavior is inconsistent with 
the standards of the college. The Bridgewater State College 
Handbook outlines campus policies and may be viewed at www. 
bridgew.edu/Handbook/index.htm. 



Academic Integrity 

Institutions of higher education are dedicated to the pursuit of 
truth. In this pursuit, academic honesty is of fundamental impor- 
tance. Faculty, students and administrators all have a responsibil- 
ity to value, demonstrate and safeguard academic integrity as 
one of the college's most essential institutional values. 

The college has an obligation to establish and promote stan- 
dards of academic integrity, and each member of the college 
community has the responsibility to understand, support, and 
practice them. When standards of academic integrity are fol- 
lowed, teaching and learning can proceed in an environment of 
trust. When such standards are violated, teaching and learning 
are in doubt and suspicion. Therefore, the best interests of the 
college community require that cases of alleged academic dis- 
honesty be addressed seriously but equitably. 

At Bridgewater State College, academic honesty is expected of 
all students; plagiarism and cheating are not condoned and are 
subject to academic penalty, which may result in a failure for the 
course in which the violation took place. A violation may result in 
a reduced grade, suspension, or dismissal from the college. 

Academic misconduct includes, but is not limited to, plagiarism, 
cheating, and dishonest practices. The procedure for implement- 
ing an academic penalty for academic misconduct is as follows: 

• The instructor shall notify the student of the alleged violation, 
and they shall discuss the matter usually within seven days 
of the notice of the alleged infraction. The instructor and/or 
the student may request that the department chair, or other 
party from the College, be present at this meeting. The instruc- 
tor shall notify the department chair and the associate vice 
president for academic affairs of the nature of the alleged 
violation, the outcome of the meeting held with the student, 
and the penalty, which may include a reduced grade on an 
assignment or in the course, including failure. The instructor 
reports the case to the academic review panel, and may refer 



the case for review. The instructor shall inform the student that 
further action may be taken by the associate vice president 
for academic affairs, in cases of repeat offenses. The associate 
vice president for academic affairs will refer cases of repeat 
offenses to the academic review panel. 

• If the matter is not resolved, the student or instructor may 
request a hearing within five school days before the academic 
review panel, and the student and instructor, each with a 
representative serving in an advisory capacity, should either 
choose to have one, shall meet with the panel to discuss the 
alleged violation of college policy. The academic review panel 
shall conduct its investigations usually within 1 5 days fol- 
lowing notification and shall follow the requirements of due 
process. Based upon the allegations or evidence received, 
the panel may recommend further sanctions, or no change 
in sanctions, or a reduction in sanctions, and will take into 
account any previous infractions only after it concludes its 
investigation of the present case. Further sanctions may 
include suspension or expulsion. 

Requests by students for hearings by the academic review panel 
will be considered on the basis of inappropriate sanctions, viola- 
tion of due process, procedural error that negatively impacted 
the outcome, or new evidence that was not reasonably available 
at the time of the meeting with the instructor. 

The academic review panel will consist of three faculty members 
and two student members of the academic policies commit- 
tee, appointed annually by the chairperson of that committee; 
three members must be present, including at least two faculty 
members, to constitute a quorum. In addition, the associate vice 
president for academic affairs will serve in a non-voting capacity 
as advisor to the panel and will maintain a record of reported 
violations by students. Multiple offenses by a student may have 
a bearing on the sanctions imposed by the panel. All evidence 
before the academic review panel is confidential. 

Any decision of the academic review panel shall be forwarded 
in writing to the associate vice president for academic affairs, 
who shall inform both the student and the instructor of the deci- 
sion in writing by hand delivery or by return-receipt-requested, 
addressee-only mail. 

An appeal by either party shall be made to the vice president for 
academic affairs. 



Classroom Conduct Policy 

Because all students and faculty at Bridgewater State College 
are entitled to a positive and constructive teaching and learning 
environment, Bridgewater State College students are prohibited 
from engaging in behavior or activity that causes the disruption 
of teaching, learning, research, or other academic activities nec- 
essary for the fulfillment of the College mission. 



Note: See Catalog Web Addenda at vmw.bridgew.edu/catalogladdendal as that information supersedes the published version of this catalog. 



ndergraduate Academic Policies 





If disruptive behavior occurs, whether in the classroom or 
another academic environment, a faculty member has the right 
to remove the student from the classroom setting. Examples of 
potentially disruptive behavior may include, but are not limited 
to, using derogatory, vulgar, and insulting language directed at 
an individual or group, unsolicited talking in class, sleeping in 
class, using or activating cell phones, arriving at or leaving the 
classroom while class is in session, and/or failing to comply with 
the legitimate request of a College faculty member. 

If a student exhibits disruptive behavior, the faculty member may 
ask the student to stop the behavior. If the student does not com- 
ply with the professor's request, he or she will be asked to leave 
and the professor will indicate the expected appropriate conduct 
to be able to return to class. If the student agrees to the faculty 
member's instructions and returns to class but subsequently 
continues to engage in disruptive behavior during future class 
sessions, the faculty member will forward written documentation 
of the student's behavior to the respective department chairper- 
son, who will meet with the student to review the matter and 
determine an appropriate course of action. While the courses of 
action will vary, they may include referral to advising or counsel- 
ing, reduction in grade, or withdrawal from the course. 

If the student does not comply with the course of action and 
continues to engage in disruptive behavior, the student may 
be withdrawn from the course after a review conducted by the 
Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs. This action may 
have implications for the student's full-time status, financial aid, 
health insurance, and resident status. 

Students who exhibit behavior that immediately endangers or 
seriously disrupts the establishment or maintenance of an appro- 
priate learning environment in the classroom are subject to an 
immediate review by the Associate Vice President for Academic 
Affairs. If, at any time, faculty or students feel threatened, they 
should call Campus Police at 1 2 1 2. 

In all cases involving an individual with a disability, including 
mental disabilities, this policy will operate to make determina- 
tions based upon an individual's behavior rather than upon 
the individual's status of having a disability. Students have a 
personal obligation to obtain medical care for conditions that 
may affect their conduct, and to take any related medications as 
prescribed by their physicians. Under applicable disability laws, 
sutdents with disabilities are responsible for their disruptive 
conduct. 

The Vice President for Academic Affairs will act as the sole 
and final appeal for any decisions made by the Associate Vice 
President for Academic Affairs.

In order for a first semester transfer student to avoid separation 
from the college, his/her cumulative GPA must remain at 1 .5 
or above. After the first semester, a transfer student follows the 
table above. 

Academic Probation 

Students on academic probation are limited to 13 semester 
hours during the semester they are on probation. In addi- 
tion, academic probation may involve 1) an adjustment in the 
student's academic load, 2) frequent interviews between the 
student and adviser for the analysis of difficulties and for check- 
ing the student's progress, 3) a stipulation that certain courses 
be taken to improve the student's academic performance, 4) 
restrictions on the student's extracurricular activities, and 5) 
other such precautions as are deemed advisable. 

Academic Separation 

Students who have been academically separated from the 
college may not take courses at the college (day or evening) for 
at least one academic semester. After this time period, students 
may apply for readmission through the admissions office. Al- 
though not required, it is recommended that readmission appli- 
cants give evidence of at least one semester of academic work 
with a 2.5 GPA or better at some other institution of higher 
learning. Students who have previously completed courses at 
a college are reminded that a total of not more than 69 credit 
hours may be transferred from two-year institutions. However, 
course work taken elsewhere will not necessarily be accepted 
as transfer credit. An undergraduate matriculated student who 
is academically dismissed twice can only apply for readmission 
after a three-year period. If readmitted, the student is placed on 
academic probation and must achieve a minimum GPA of 2.0 in 
order to continue. 



The student may also be subject to disciplinary action under the 
Student Code of Conduct. 



The grade point average of the student will be resumed after 
readmission. Students who have left the college for a minimum

Undergraduate Academic Policies 



of three years may be given special consideration upon written 
appeal to the vice president for academic affairs. 

Note: Academic readmission or reinstatement to the college 
does not guarantee reneweo financial aid eligibility. The student 
must contact the Financial Aid Office to be considered for 
financial aid. 



Satisfactory Academic Progress 

In addition to being in good academic standing (please see the 
preceding section), a student is defined as making satisfactory 
academic progress when the academic record shows successful 
completion of a specified number of credits per semester. Full- 
time students must earn a minimum of 10 semester credits each 
semester to achieve satisfactory academic progress. 

Students should note that many financial assistance programs 
require participants to make satisfactory academic progress in 
order to remain eligible. The definition of satisfactory progress 
differs from that stated in the policy above. 

See the "Financial Aid" section of this catalog for further infor- 
mation concerning satisfactory academic progress for financial 
aid purposes. 



AWARDING OF UNDERGRADUATE 
DEGREES 



Commencement Ceremony 

The college conducts two commencement ceremonies annually, 
in winter and in spring. Students who complete requirements in 
August or December will be invited to participate in the winter 
ceremony. 



Degree Application 

Students who believe they are ready to receive their degree 
from Bridgewater State College are required to complete a 
formal degree application. These applications are available in 
the Registrar's Office. Each student is responsible for meeting 
all degree requirements and for ensuring that the Registrar's 
Office has received all credentials. 

Recommended graduation application deadlines are listed 
below: 

August I: for winter/January graduation 
December 1: for spring/May graduation 
April 15: for summer/August graduation 



Graduation Requirements 

Curricula leading to baccalaureate degrees are so planned that 
a student carrying 1 5 credit hours each semester will ordinarily 
be able to complete the requirements for graduation in four 
years or eight semesters. Degrees will be awarded to candidates 
who have fulfilled the following: 

1 . A MINIMUM of 1 20 credits, distributed according to the 
Core Curriculum Requirements, the requirements of the de- 
clared major and any free electives. Satisfactory completion 
of all requirements for a bachelor's degree must be under 

a catalog in effect within eight years of the date of gradua- 
tion. The catalog used, however, may be no earlier than the 
catalog in effect at the time of matriculation or, in the case 
of a change of major, concentration, or minor, no earlier 
than the catalog in effect when the major, concentration, 
or minor was formally declared. 
Note: This policy does not apply to students enrolled in 
programs governed by state and/or federal regulations 
where current academic requirements may need to be 
met. Students should check with their departments where 
applicable; 

2. A MINIMUM of 30 credit hours completed through Bridge- 
water State College, including at least one half of the re- 
quired courses in the major and any minor field (excluding 
cognate requirements). 

Note: Of the 90 credits that may be accepted in transfer by 
Bridgewater State College and applied to the baccalaure- 
ate degree, only 69 credits will be accepted from two-year 
institutions. 

3. A MINIMUM of 1 5 credit hours of the final 30 credit hours 
of a student's degree program completed through Bridge- 
water State College. 

Note: Any course taken at another accredited institution 
after admission to Bridgewater State Colloege must have 
departmental pre-approval. A student must complete an 
Approval Form for the Transfer of Undergraduate Credits 
After Admission for each course in advance. 

4. A MINIMUM cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 
2.0 (or higher if required by the major at Bridgewater 
State College) and any other academic requirements of 
the student's major department as approved by college 
governance procedures; 

5. A MINIMUM cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 
or higher in the student's major(s) and minor(s) require- 
ments taken through Bridgewater State College. The major 
GPA includes all courses completed in the major field 
(excluding cognate requirements). The minor GPA includes 
all courses required for completion of the minor, regardless 
of the department in which the courses are offered. 

• The credit earned in an introductory college skills course 
may not be used to satisfy Core Curriculum Requirements 
nor may it be applied toward the minimum number of 
credits required for graduation in any major. 



Note: See Catalog Web Addenda at www.bridgew.edu/catalog/addenda/ as that information supersedes the published version of this catalog. 



• Students will not be allowed to receive their diplomas 
or transcripts until all financial debts to the college have 
been paid. 

Conferral of a degree occurs when the registrar finalizes the stu- 
dent's academic record and confirms that all requirements have 
been satisfied. Participation in the commencement ceremony 
does not constitute conferral of the degree. Similarly, inclusion 
of a student's name in such publications as the commencement 
program does not confirm eligibility for the degree. 

Graduation Requirements - Second Degree Program 

Upon admission to a second undergraduate degree program 
(see the "Undergraduate Admissions" section of this catalog), 
the student will meet with an adviser from the major depart- 
ment to plan a course of study based on the current require- 
ments of that major. That course of study must be approved 
by the chair of the department and forwarded to the assistant 
registrar. Any changes in that course of study must also have 
the approval of the adviser and the chair and be forwarded to 
the assistant registrar. If a student does not complete the course 
of study within four years of admission, the department may 
require the student to change the course of study to reflect 
changes in major requirements. (Note: This time period does not 
apply to students enrolled in programs governed by state and/or 
federal regulations where current academic requirements may 
need to be met. Students should check with their departments 
where applicable.) 

The graduation requirements for a second degree are as 
follows: 

1 . The completion of a minimum of 30 semester hours 
through Bridgewater State College beyond the first 
degree with a minimum cumulative grade point average 
(GPA) of 2.0 (or higher if required by the major depart- 
ment). 

2. The completion of at least one half of the required 
courses in the second degree major (excluding cognate 
requirements) through Bridgewater State College. The 
remainder of the major requirements may be satisfied by 
the transfer of courses from another accredited institu- 
tion. 

3. A minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 
(or higher if required by the major department) in the 
student's major requirements taken through Bridgewa- 
ter State College. The major GPA includes all courses 
completed in the major field (excluding cognate require- 
ments). The minor GPA includes all courses required for 
completion of the minor, regardless of the department in 
which the courses are offered. 

4. The completion of all cognate requirements for the major 
as outlined on the adviser-approved course of study. 

The Bridgewater State College Core Curriculum Requirements 
are satisfied by the student's first bachelor's degree, whether 



that degree was earned through Bridgewater State College or 
another accredited institution. Each student, however, must 
fulfill the state-mandated requirement in United States and 
Massachusetts Constitutions. 

Both the cumulative grade point average (GPA) and the major 
grade point average (GPA) for the second degree will be based 
on all grades received through Bridgewater State College, and 
all undergraduate courses will appear on one continuous aca- 
demic record. A student must maintain a minimum 2.0 cumula- 
tive GPA in order to remain in good academic standing at the 
college and continue in the program. Upon completion of the 
second degree, the student will be eligible to attend commence- 
ment and graduate with honors based on the cumulative GPA 
for all undergraduate level work attempted through Bridgewater 
State College. 

Graduation With Honors 

Academic excellence for the baccalaureate program is recog- 
nized by awarding degrees summa cum laude (cumulative GPA 
of 3.8 or higher), magna cum laude (cumulative GPA of 3.6 
to 3.79), and cum laude (cumulative GPA of 3.3 to 3.59). The 
cumulative GPA determined for honors is based on all college- 
level work attempted through Bridgewater State College. 

The Commencement Program is printed prior to grades being 
submitted for the student's final semester; therefore, the Reg- 
istrar's Office must print the honors designation that a student 
has earned up to the time of publication. The student's diploma 
and finalized transcript, however, will reflect the official honors 
designation based upon the student's final grade point average. 



GRADING SYSTEM 

The college uses the letter-grade system of marking to indicate 
the student's relative performance: A - Superior; B - Good; 
C - Satisfactory; D - Poor; F - Failure; IP - In Progress; W 
-Withdrawn. Grades in the A, B, C, and D ranges may include a 
designation of plus or minus. In computing averages, grades are 
assigned the following numerical values: 

A 4.0 B- 2.7 D+ 1.3 

A- 3.7 C+ 2.3 D 1.0 

B+ 3.3 C 2.0 D- 0.7 

B 3.0 C- 1.7 F 0.0 

Certain courses such as internships and practica may be offered 
on a Pass (P)/No Pass (N) basis. Courses whose credits cannot 
be used toward degree credits earned (ex. Freshman Skills 
courses) are assigned grades of Satisfactory (S)/Unsatisfactory 
(U). No numeric value is assigned to grades P, N, S, or U. A sym- 
bol of WA may be given to any student who ceases attending a 
course without withdrawing between the end of the drop/add 
period and the end of the withdrawal period. 



50 



Undergraduate Academic Policies 




Grades for all courses (day and evening) at Bridgewater State 
College become a part of the student's record and are used 
in computing the GPA. 

Audit 

A student may audit (AU) a course to gain knowledge in a par- 
ticular subject area without earning credit or a grade. Students 
auditing a course attend and participate in classes; however, 
they are exempt from examinations. The course is automatically 
designated AU and becomes part of the student's permanent aca- 
demic record. Audited courses will not be used to fulfill degree 
or graduation requirements. Students must submit a completed 
Course Audit Request form before the close of the drop/add 
period. Forms are available at the Registrar's Office. 

Change of Grade 

If a student believes that a mistake was made in the original 
grade recorded for a course, the student may petition the instruc- 
tor for a change of grade no later than the last day of final exams 
in the academic semester following that in which the grade was 
recorded. A change of grade will not be considered after this 
time. 

Dean's List 

The dean's list is published at the end of each semester to honor 
the academic achievement of full-time matriculated undergradu- 
ate students. A 3.3 average for the semester is required with 
a minimum of 12 credits completed and no grades of "incom- 
plete" (IN). 

Grade Point Average (GPA) 

The Grade Point Average indicates the student's overall academ- 
ic average. It is calculated on both a semester and a cumulative 
basis. The GPA is computed by multiplying the grade numerical 
value received in each course by the number of credit hours per 
course. These totals are combined, and the result is divided by 
the total number of semester hours carried.

Projecting an Anticipated Grade Point Average 

If a student hopes to earn an overall 3.3 GPA, he or she can 
project the semester GPA needed to achieve this goal by follow- 
ing the steps listed below: 



Incomplete 

An incomplete (IN) may be given at the discretion of the instruc- 
tor. The time by which missing work must be made up, both in 
graduate and undergraduate courses, is also at the discretion of 
the instructor; however, this time period may not extend beyond 
the last day of classes of the academic semester following that 
in which the incomplete was earned. If a course is not success- 
fully completed by this deadline, the incomplete will automati- 
cally be changed to a grade of "F" (failure), N (No Pass), or U 
(Unsatisfactory). 

All work must be completed prior to graduation, including 
resolution of any grades of incomplete. The record is finalized as 
of the date the degree is conferred. 

Mid-Semester Warning Notices 

Faculty may elect to send mid-semester warning notices to under- 
graduate students who are receiving less than a C- (1.7) average 
in any course at that time. It is the student's responsibility to 
meet with his/her adviser and the instructor of any course in 
which a warning is received. Since mid-semester warning notices 
are not issued by all instructors, students who do not receive no- 
tification are cautioned not to presume that they are maintaining 
a grade of C- or better. 

Repeat Courses 

Undergraduate students may repeat a course for which they 
receive a grade of C- or less. Although all courses will appear 
on the student's transcript, credit for the course will be awarded 
only once unless otherwise stated in the college catalog. For 
the first three times that a course is taken, only the most recent 
grade will be used to calculate the GPA, regardless of which 
grade is higher. All grades for courses taken the third and 
subsequent times will be used in the calculation of the student's 
GPA. (This policy does not apply to courses taken at the gradu- 
ate level.) 

Please note that the Veterans Administration will not pay for a 
repeated course in which a passing grade has previously been 
earned.

ndergraduate Academic Policies 




REGISTRATION AND ENROLLMENT 
POLICIES 

Attendance Policy 

Students are responsible for satisfactory attendance in each 
course for which they are registered. Satisfactory attendance 
shall be determined by the instructor within the context of this 
policy statement. The approval of excused absences and the as- 
signment of make-up work are the prerogative of the course in- 
structor. The college's health services does not make judgments 
about whether a student can attend class except in rare cases 
when attendance would be harmful to the student's health or 
the health of others. In general, students will be excused with- 
out penalty for reasons such as illness, participation in official 
college events, personal emergencies and religious holidays. 
Students should consult with faculty members in advance of any 
absence whenever feasible. 

NOTE: If a student fails to attend the first three class hours of 
a course, the instructor has the option of deleting the student 
from the class roster. 

If a student has a concern with regard to the attendance 
policies or a faculty member has a concern about a student's 
excessive absence, he or she should confer with the chairperson 
of the department. 

Change/Declaration of Concentration 

To elect a concentration, students must complete a Concentra- 
tion Declaration Form in the Academic Achievement Center. Stu- 
dents may change their concentration at anytime by obtaining 
the necessary form from the Academic Achievement Center. 

Change/Declaration of Major for 
Freshmen 

All students who enter as freshmen must formally declare a major 
or choose the status of an undeclared major. The undeclared 
student should select a major by the end of the sophomore year. 
Freshmen may change their area of interest by obtaining the nec- 
essary forms from the Academic Achievement Center. Although 
early childhood, elementary education and special education 
majors may not be formally admitted into the teacher education 
program until the second semester of the sophomore year, they 
must confirm their continued interest in these majors by the same 
process used by the other freshmen for declaration of majors. In 
addition to their education program, students must also elect a 
major in the liberal arts. 

Change of Major for Upperclassmen 

Students may change majors at any time by obtaining the 
necessary forms from the Academic Achievement Center, secur- 



ing the signatures of the department chairpersons involved, 
filing the completed form with the Registrar's office. 



and 1 



Change/Declaration of Minor 

In order to be enrolled in any minor offered by the college, a 
student must declare the intended minor on forms available 
from the Academic Achievement Center. Students may change 
their minor at anytime by obtaining the necessary form from the 
Academic Achievement Center. 

Students planning on being certified as secondary or middle 
school teachers should declare their minor in secondary educa- 
tion during their freshman or sophomore year. 

Certification that the requirements of the minor have been met 
is made on the Degree Application Card by the department 
offering the minor. Students must achieve a minimum 2.0 cumu- 
lative average in declared minors for graduation. 

Classification Designation 

Students are designated as being in a given classification on 
the basis of the number of credits they have earned for courses 
completed successfully. The list below shows the number of 
credits which must be recorded in order for a student to be 
designated as a member of a particular classification. 

Students should understand that these are minimum totals of 
credits accrued. The normal course load is 1 5 credits per semes- 
ter, and it is this total which, maintained over eight semesters, 
yields the 120 credits required as a minimum for the baccalau- 
reate degree. 

For registration purposes, students will be classified based upon 
the total number of credit hours earned prior to the semester in 
which the registration is held.

Course Audit 

Students may audit courses under the guidelines noted below. 
The student will receive no academic credit for the courses nor 
will a grade be reflected in his or her cumulative grade point 
average. 

• A student may audit a course subject to the approval of his 
or her adviser or department chairperson and consent of the 
instructor. 

• A student is subject to conditions established by the depart- 
ment and/or instructor for the audited course.

• A student registering for credit has course enrollment prefer- 
ence over an auditing student. Therefore, a student must reg- 
ister for audit only during the drop/add period by submitting 
forms provided by the Registrar's Office. A student's status as 
an auditor in a course cannot be changed. 

• A student may register for one audit course per semester. Ex- 
ception may be granted by petition to the appropriate school 
dean. 

• A student receives no credit for an audited course. The 
student's academic record will reflect the course enrollment 
with the notation AU. 

• A student will be charged the same tuition and fees 
for an audited course as for a course taken for credit. 



Course Drops and Adds 

The Drop/Add Schedule is as follows: 

• The Drop/ Add period for 1 5-week semester courses ends 
after the 6 th weekday of the semester. 

• The Drop/Add period for 7-week quarter courses ends after 
the 3 rd weekday of the quarter. 

• The Drop/Add period for 5-week summer courses ends after 
the 3 rd weekday of the session. 

• The Drop/Add period for 10-week summer courses ends 
after the 5 th weekday of the session. 

• The Drop/Add period for nonregular courses ends one 
weekday after the first class meeting. However, students 
cannot add intensive - e.g., weekend or one-week 

- courses after the first class meeting. 

No adds or drops will be permitted after these deadlines. 
Drop/Add forms are available at the Registrar's Office during the 
drop/add period. It is advisable that students discuss changes in 
their schedule with their adviser. 

If students fail to drop courses appropriately, a grade of "F" 
may be entered on their academic record. This grade will be 
used in computing the GPA. 



Course Loads 

Full-time undergraduate students must carry a course load of 1 2 
to 18 credit hours or the equivalent each semester. The typical 
course load is 1 5 credit hours. Students wishing to carry more 
than 18 credit hours must receive permission from the appropri- 
ate school dean prior to registration. Failure to carry at least 1 2 
credit hours may jeopardize housing, financial aid status and 
athletic eligibility. 

Undergraduate students wishing to carry a course load of more 
than 14 credit hours during the summer must obtain permission 
from the appropriate school dean prior to registration. 



It is recommended that students not carry semester courses dur- 
ing the semester in which they enroll in student teaching. 



Credit by Examination 

The college encourages qualified students to meet certain 
graduation requirements through "Credit by Examination." 
Currently the college will award credit for successful comple- 
tion of the College Level Examination Program's (CLEP) general 
or subject area examinations. In addition, certain departments 
offer their own examinations for which credit can be awarded. 
Additional information can be obtained from the Test Center in 
the Academic Achievement Center, 508.531.1780. 

See the "Undergraduate Admissions" section of this catalog for 
further information concerning credit by examination. 



Intercollegiate Athletics Eligibility 

The following five rules govern intercollegiate athletics eligibility 
for most students attending Bridgewater. 

1 . A student-athlete must be a full-time undergraduate stu- 
dent. 

2. A student-athlete must maintain a minimum of 1 2 credit 
hours or the equivalent each semester. 

3. A student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point 
average (GPA) of 2.0. 

4. A student-athlete must pass 24 credit hours (normal 
progress rule) or the equivalent in an academic year as a 
fuil-time student. 

5. A student-athlete must sign the NCAA student-athlete 
statement concerning eligibility, a Buckley Amendment 
consent and a drug testing consent. 

Student-athletes are required to undergo both physical and 
orthopedic examinations prior to competing on intercollegiate 
teams. Specific information on these exams can be obtained 
either from the director of athletics or from the head athletic 
trainer. 

In addition, there are very specific requirements which must 
be met by transfer students from other four-year institutions, 
transfer students from two-year or junior colleges and students 
who have been involved in multiple transfers. For information, 
please confer with the director of athletics. 

On a case-by-case basis, a student enrolled in a part-time 
academic course load, as an accommodation to a documented 
disability, will not be excluded from participating in athletic pro- 
grams. The student shall follow the normal petition and appeal 
processes through the director of athletics and recreation.

STATE COLLEGE 



Make-up Tests and Examinations 

The procedure for making up an examination held during 
the semester is determined by the individual instructor or 
the department. If a student misses an examination, it is the 
student's responsibility to notify the instructor immediately so 
that alternative arrangements may be made. 

The privilege of making up a final examination will be granted 
only when the cause has been the serious illness of the student 
or a member of his or her immediate family. All such excuses 
must be documented by a medical doctor and submitted to the 
instructor of the course. 



Prerequisites 

Students must have the necessary prerequisite for each course. 
Prerequisites, if any, are indicated with the individual course 
listing and are enforced at the time of registration. Prerequisite 
courses taken at institutions other than Bridgewater State Col- 
lege must be documented (transcript or grade report, and, in 
some cases, course description) prior to registration. 

Students who wish to enroll in a course without the 
prerequisite(s) must obtain a Prerequisite Override Form prior 
to registering for the course. The form must be signed by the 
chairperson of the department through which the course is of- 
fered and, in some cases, the instructor of the course. Students 
seeking an override of professional education prerequisites for 
courses taught through the School of Education and Allied Stud- 
ies must complete a Request for a Student to Take an Upper 
Level Professional Education Course Without Formal Program 
Admission form and obtain all required signatures. 



Registration 

Preregistration is held for returning, matriculated undergradu- 
ate, graduate and joint admission students in November for the 
spring semester and in April for the fall semester. During the 
advising period held two weeks prior to registration, a student 
meets with his/her adviser to review the student's progress to- 
ward meeting Core Curriculum Requirements and specific degree 
requirements. A class schedule is developed, and the student's 
registration form is signed by the adviser. In the case of double 
majors, the form must be signed by both advisers. Preregistration 
is available via the Web and in person. Students who wish to 
register via the Web must secure electronic permission to register 
from their adviser at their advising session. Preregistration time 
is based on the student's classification (senior, junior, sophomore, 
etc.) at the close of the previous semester. 

The Course Schedule, published shortly before each registra- 
tion period, provides specific registration dates and instructions 
on how to register. Students will not be allowed to register 
for courses until all financial debts to the college are paid and 
health records are up to date. 



Transfer of Credit After Admission 

in order for undergraduates to receive credit for courses taken 
at other accredited institutions, approval must be obtained in 
advance. 

Application forms are available in the Registrar's Office. Applica- 
tions for approval of a course from another institution should be 
accompanied by the appropriate catalog from that institution. 
Approval must be obtained prior to registering for class. It is the 
student's responsibility to have official transcripts sent directly 
by the institution to the Registrar's Office within six weeks after 
the completion of the course. 

NOTE: Of the 90 credits that may be accepted in transfer by 
Bridgewater State College and applied to the baccalaureate 
degree, only 69 credits will be accepted from two-year institu- 
tions. Grades for courses taken at an institution other than 
Bridgewater State College are not used in computing the 
student's GPA. 



Withdrawal From the College 

Forms for official withdrawal from the college may be obtained 
from the Academic Achievement Center located in the Maxwell 
Library. Professional staff from the Academic Achievement Cen- 
ter will assist in completing the process, including the review of 
alternatives available to the student. Should the student leave 
the college without giving official notification, failing grades 
will be recorded for all courses. After the tenth week of classes, 
grades will be recorded for all classes and the withdrawal will 
not be effective until the last day of the semester. 



Withdrawal From Courses Following the 
Drop/Add Period 

Students may withdraw from courses following the Drop/ 
Add period if they submit a Course Withdrawal Form to the Reg- 
istrar's Office by the appropriate date listed below. The Course 
Withdrawal Form must be signed by the course instructor and 
the student's adviser or the chairperson of student's major 
department to acknowledge that the student has conferred 
with these parties. If a student falls below full time status after 
withdrawing from a course, he or she should be aware that 
eligibility for some sources of financial aid and health insurance 
and participation in extra curricular activities and on-campus 
housing may be affected. 

The Course Withdrawal Schedule is as follows: 

• The Withdrawal period for 1 5-week semester courses ends 
the weekday following the completion of the 10th week of 
the semester. 

• The Withdrawal period for 7-week quarter courses ends the 
weekday following the completion of the 5th week of the 
quarter.

• The Withdrawal period for 5-week summer courses ends the 
weekday following the completion of the 3™ week of the 
session. 

• The Withdrawal period for 10-week summer courses ends 
the weekday following the completion of the 7 tn week of 
the session. 

• The Withdrawal period for non-regular courses typically ends 
one weekday following the point when approximately 70% 
of the course has been completed. Students should consult 
the Registrar's Office for exact deadlines for withdrawal from 
these courses. 

• Students who are taking a course on-line or off-campus or 
who are non-degree seeking must meet established dead- 
lines and procedures. 

No withdrawals will be permitted after these deadlines unless 
the student can demonstrate that extraordinary circumstances 
(i.e., sudden illness, a death in the family) have prevented the 
student from withdrawing by the published deadline. Consult 
the Academic Achievement Center for more information about 
withdrawals after the deadline. 

Course withdrawals will be indicated on the student's transcript 
with a "W" and will not affect the calculation of the student's 
grade point average.

The School of Graduate Studies is responsible for the administration 
of all graduate courses and programs. 

The School of Graduate Studies at Bridgewater State College 
provides leadership, coordination and support for all academic de- 
partments engaged in graduate instruction. The graduate dean, the 
graduate faculty and the Graduate Education Council are responsible 
for the maintenance of appropriate standards for graduate degrees 
and certificates. 

The primary objective of Bridgewater State College's graduate 
programs is to increase to an advanced level each graduate student's 
understanding of and competence in a designated field of study. By 
extending the student's area of knowledge, research skills and cre- 
ative talents, the graduate programs of the college aim to increase 
the individual's ability to pursue and contribute to a satisfying career. 

The School of Graduate Studies is located in the Maxwell Library, 
ground floor, Park Avenue entrance. With some exceptions, the office 
is open Monday through Friday from 8 am to 7:30 PM.The office is 
open evenings only when classes are in session. Contact the School 
of Graduate Studies for evening hours at 508.531 .1 300 or e-mail at 
gradschool@bridgew.edu. 

Persons interested in pursuing a master's degree, certificate of 
advanced graduate study (CAGS) or Postbaccalaureate licensure pro- 
gram on either a full or part-time basis should request appropriate 
application materials from the School of Graduate Studies. Students 
are responsible for being aware of the general policies, procedures 
and requirements for graduate courses and programs outlined in the 
following pages prior to enrolling in courses carrying graduate credit. 

For additional information relative to a specific graduate program, 
students should contact the appropriate department program 
coordinator in the department involved. 



GENERAL POLICIES AND 
PROCEDURES 

Students are responsible for all information given in the latest edition 
of the catalog. Students who have questions regarding the graduate 
regulations presented in this catalog should contact the School of 
Graduate Studies. 

Academic Integrity Policy 

The School of Graduate Studies at Bridgewater State College, like 
all institutions of higher learning, considers academic integrity to 
be an important hallmark for graduate students and scholars. The 
importance of academic integrity and honesty, which is taught at 
the undergraduate level, continues to be even more vital for scholars 
and researchers at the graduate level, who find themselves writing 
seminar papers, research papers and theses. All graduate degree pro- 
grams at Bridgewater State College require courses in research where 
conventions of documentation are taught. Graduate students, who 
are acquiring scholarly habits and skills in degree programs, must rely 
on the scholarship that has preceded them, and they must acknowl- 
edge the scholarship in their own academic work by adhering to 
the time-honored conventions of their discipline. In short, graduate 
students are entering a community of scholars and must respect the 
rules and traditions of that community. Sometimes, however, gradu- 
ate students violate the accepted principles and policies of academic 
integrity and honesty. The dean of the School of Graduate Studies 
reviews any infractions of academic integrity. The following examples 
represent a partial list of serious breaches of academic integrity: 

1 . Plagiarizing any published or online source, including 
"Blackboard" and other online discussions, and claiming them 
as one's own; 

2. Not properly documenting quotations and paraphrases in one's 
texts, i.e. not using footnotes, endnotes, parenthetical citations or 
other conventional methods of documentation; 

3. Inadequate paraphrasing, with or without proper documenta- 
tion; 

4. Copying portions of Internet sources without proper documenta- 
tion and citations; 

5. Creating false documentation, i.e. purposely fabricating informa- 
tion used in references, endnotes and footnotes; 

6. Using or copying from another student's written work with or 
without the student's permission; 

7. Taking an examination for another student; 

8. Cheating on an examination; 

9. Purchasing a paper or assignment from an online source or 
another student and claiming it as one's own; 

1 0. Writing a paper or report for another student; 

1 1 . Altering or falsifying data. 

Serious violations of academic integrity are not limited to this list. 
Penalties for academic misconduct may include the following: 

1 . A grade of "F", "N", or "U" (as appropriate) in the course; 

2. A grade of " F" for the assignment being evaluated; 

3. The assigning of additional course work; 



■ 



School of Graduate Studies 



4. Suspension from graduate programs; 

5. Dismissal from graduate programs. 

The procedure for implementing a penalty for academic dishonesty 
or misconduct, which includes, but is not limited to, plagiarism and 
cheating, is as follows: 

1 . The professor will notify graduate students of any alleged viola- 
tions of the Graduate School's Academic Integrity Policy, and 
they shall discuss the matter in person, via e-mail or by phone 
within seven business days of the discovery of the alleged mis- 
conduct. (The professor may invite a third party to the meeting, 
if warranted.) If it is determined that academic dishonesty or 
misconduct has occurred, the students' advisers, the graduate 
program coordinators, department chairs, the appropriate school 
deans and the dean of the Graduate School will be notified by 
the professor in writing of the misconduct, the proposed penalty, 
and the outcome of the discussion with the students. A record of 
the case, including the letter from the professor, along with any 
supporting documentation, will be kept in students' f iles at the 
School of Graduate Studies. 

2. If the matter is not resolved through the initial process described 
above, students may file letters of appeal within five business 
days to the dean of the School of Graduate Studies, attaching 
any relevant documents. The dean will submit appeals to the 
Graduate Education Council (GEC).The professors and the stu- 
dents will be notified of the meeting times and dates and invited 
to attend a meeting of the Graduate Education Council, at which 
time matters will be reviewed. In conducting its reviews, the 
Graduate Education Council will follow the requirements of due 
process. Both students and professors can attend the meetings 
with representatives, who may serve as advisers or advocates. 

Under the direction of the chair of the Graduate Education Council, 
the GEC will review student appeals and make its decision, which 
shall be forwarded in writing to the dean of the School of Graduate 
Studies. Based upon the allegations or evidence received, the 
Graduate Education Council may recommend further sanctions, 
no change in sanctions or a reduction in sanctions. The Graduate 
Education Council will take into account any previous infractions only 
after it concludes its investigation of the present case. Further sanc- 
tions may include suspension or dismissal. 

Students and professors involved will receive copies of the decision 
letter from the Graduate Education Council, and copies will be pro- 
vided to the students' advisers, graduate coordinators, department 
chairs and appropriate school dean. A copy of this letter will also be 
placed in students' official files in the School of Graduate Studies. 

Academic Dismissal 

If students' GPAs remain below a 3.0 for two consecutive 
semesters, their academic progress is in jeopardy. The School of 
Graduate Studies makes every attempt not to dismiss students 
from academic programs, though prolonged GPAs below 3.0 
may result in academic dismissal. 



Academic Probation 

Any matriculated or nonmatriculated graduate students whose 
cumulative GPA falls below 3.0 will be notified that they are on aca- 
demic probation. When graduate students are placed on academic 
probation, they will receive a letter from the School of Graduate 
Studies. This letter informs students that they should be mindful that 
their GPA has fallen below a 3.0. Students should discuss the matter 
with their advisers. 

Academic Standing for Graduate Students 

In the courses which a graduate student offers to satisfy degree 
requirements, the minimum standard for satisfactory work is a 3.0 
average. 

Appeals 

Graduate students who experience problems pertaining to graduate 
policies, including academic performance, program requirements or 
other academic issues, may petition to have the matter considered 
through the established review process of the School of Graduate 
Studies: 

1 . Submit a written appeal to the course instructor if the issue 
is course-related or to the academic adviser if the matter is 
program-related. 

2. If unresolved, submit a written appeal to the department gradu- 
ate program coordinator. 

3. If unresolved, submit a written appeal to the appropriate school 
dean. 

4. If unresolved, submit a written appeal to the dean of the School 
of Graduate Studies. 

5. The dean of the School of Graduate Studies will submit graduate 
student petitions to the Graduate Education Council for review. 
(The Graduate Education Council consists of representatives 
from the college's graduate faculty, administrators and graduate 
student body.) 

Change of Grade 

If a student believes that a mistake was made in the original grade 
recorded for a course, the student may petition an instructor for 
a change of grade no later than the last day of final exams in the 
academic semester following that in which the grade was recorded. 
A change of grade will not be considered after this time. 

Change of Name and/or Address 

Students should promptly notify the Registrar's Office of any change 
in name or address by using the appropriate form. Official legal 
documentation (i.e. marriage certificate) must be presented. Forms 
are also available at the School of Graduate Studies or may be 
printed from the college Web site www.bridgew.edu/registrar/forms.

School of Graduate Studies 



Comprehensive Examination 

In most graduate programs, graduate students must take compre- 
hensive examinations that reflect the full ranges of their programs. 
The comprehensive examination is based upon the student's major 
areas of study, as well as related areas, and may include work done 
on a thesis. Students must give evidence that they can integrate 
information and ideas from the various areas in which they have 
studied. The comprehensive examination may be written, oral, 
or Web-based, as determined by the students' departments. The 
academic department determines the format of its comprehensive 
examination. 

To be eligible for a comprehensive examination, students should be 
near completion of the course work specified by their major academic 
departments. Students who plan to take the comprehensive exami- 
nation should file a Comprehensive Examination Request form in the 
School of Graduate Studies, with a nonrefundable comprehensive 
examination fee of $60 for master's degree candidates and $75 for 
CAGS candidates. 

Checks should be made payable to Bridgewater State College. The 
completed form with necessary signatures and fee must be filed in 
the School of Graduate Studies on or before the appropriate applica- 
tion deadline: 

October 1 November comprehensive examinations 

February 1 March/April comprehensive examinations 

Ordinarily, comprehensive examinations are given during the months 
of November and March/April. The academic departments set the 
specific date of the comprehensive examination. 

All students who take the comprehensive examination will receive 
their results by mail in a timely fashion. 

Students who fail the comprehensive examination shall be given 
one additional opportunity to pass. If students fail a second compre- 
hensive examination, students are subject to academic dismissal. 
Students should meet immediately with their faculty advisers or 
designated personnel to review weaknesses of their performances, 
and prescribed programs of study should be designed to help 
students prepare for the second examination. After students have 
made substantial progress in the additional work prescribed by the 
department, students will be allowed to retake the comprehensive 
examinations. Students who retake the examination must register 
and submit the exam fee. 



Continuation or Interruption of Course 
Registration 

Graduate students have six (6) years to complete their degree 
programs. Should graduate students not enroll in courses during 
the fall or spring semesters or summer sessions, students will be 
considered inactive. If students are deemed inactive and wish to reg- 
ister for courses, students should seek reinstatement by contacting 



the School of Graduate Studies at 508.531.1300 or gradschool® 
bridgew.edu. This policy is designated to ensure appropriate aca- 
demic advising and counseling for all graduate students enrolled in 
degree programs as well as non-degree students. 



Course Drops and Adds 

The Drop/Add schedule is as follows: 

• The Drop/Add period for 1 5-week semester courses ends after 
the sixth weekday of the semester. 

• The Drop/Add period for seven-week quarter courses ends after 
the third weekday of the quarter. 

• The Drop/Add period for five-week summer courses ends after 
the third weekday of the session. 

• The Drop/Add period for 10-week summer courses ends after 
the fifth weekday of the session. 

• The Drop/Add period for non-regular courses ends one weekday 
after the first class meeting. However, students cannot add 
intensive - e.g., weekend or one-week - courses after the first 
class meeting. 

No adds or drops will be permitted after these deadlines. Drop/Add 
forms are available at the Registrar's Office during the drop/add 
period. It is advisable that students discuss changes in their schedule 
with their adviser. 

If students fail to drop courses appropriately, a grade of "F" will be 
entered on their academic record. This grade will be used in comput- 
ing the GPA. 



Course Loads 

Full-time graduate study for master's degree and CAGS students is 
defined, for academic purposes only, as being enrolled in nine or 
more graduate credits in a given semester. To be considered full-time, 
post-baccalaureate program students must carry a course load of 
at least 1 2 credits each semester, as defined under "Course Loads" 
in the Undergraduate Academic Policies section of this catalog. 
(The Accelerated Post-Baccalaureate program does not fall into this 
category.) 

Full-time graduate students may register for up to 1 5 credits per 
semester and up to six credits during each of the two summer ses- 
sions. Students wishing to register for more than the maximum credit 
load must receive permission in writing from their graduate advisers 
and program coordinators. 

Full-time graduate students carrying nine credits or more: see 
Immunization Requirements for Graduate Students section. 



Course Registration 

Prior to the registration period for the fall, spring and summer ses- 
sions, a course schedule is published by the Registrar's Office. Hard 
copies of this schedule are available at the Registrar's Office and the 
School of Graduate Studies. The course schedule is also available 
online through InfoBear at www.bridgew.edu. Graduate students 
are not required to have registration forms signed by their advisers; 



School of Graduate Studies 



BSC 



BRIDGEWATER 
STATE COLLEGE 



however, graduate students should consult their advisers on a regular 
basis regarding their course schedules. 

Graduate course work is offered on either a full- or part-time basis. 
Students should realize that it is not possible to set an absolute 
deadline for completing a graduate program due to such factors as 
the college's need to reserve the right to cancel any course for which 
there is insufficient enrollment and the need of the departments to 
offer courses on a rotating basis. 



Deadlines 

Graduate students are reminded to consult the annual college aca- 
demic calendar for deadlines and dates for admission, comprehensive 
examination requests and applications to graduate. This calendar is 
printed in the college catalog, course schedule and on the college 
Web site. 



Grading System 

The School of Graduate Studies requires that matriculated gradu- 
ate students maintain a high level of academic standing as they 
advance in their degree programs. The grading system for graduate 
students at BSC is different from that of the undergraduate programs. 
Graduate course achievement will be rated A (4.0), A- (3.7), B+ (3.3), 
B (3.0), B- (2.7), C+ (2.3), C (2.0), C- (1 .7), F (0),W (Withdrawn), IN 
(Incomplete), or AU (Audit). Some courses are graded on a P (Pass)/N 
(No Pass) or S (Satisfactory)/U (Unsatisfactory) basis. Refer to the 
"Course Descriptions" section in this catalog. 

This grading system puts more pressure on graduate students to per- 
form at a higher level than undergraduate students.Though graduate 
students may earn less than a B in a course, the overall GPA must be 
a 3.0 at the time of graduation. 



Graduate and Undergraduate Credit 

Courses at BSC with 500- and 600-level numbers carry graduate 
credit and are open only to graduate students. 

An undergraduate may request to enroll in a 500 level course for 
undergraduate credit. Approval is based upon the following criteria: 

• Students must be seniors in their last semester of course 
work. 

• Students' GPA must be a 3.5 or higher. 

• Students' written requests must be approved'by the chair of 
the students' major departments, academic school dean and 
the dean of the School of Graduate Studies. 

Certain designated 400 level courses may be taken for either 
graduate or undergraduate credit. The School of Graduate Studies 
guidelines for faculty teaching these courses indicate that advanced 
work should be required of graduate students taking 400 level 
courses. The guidelines recommend more rigorous examinations and 
more sophisticated term papers so that graduate students may take 
into account the different quantitative and qualitative standards 
associated with graduate study. 



Graduate Assistantship 

Bridgewater State College awards graduate assistantships to 
students who are fully admitted to a graduate program and who 
maintain good academic standing during the time of the award. The 
total award equals approximately $ 1 0,000 per academic year, which 
includes tuition and fee remission for up to 24 credits per year plus 
a stipend. The stipend varies between $600 and $650 per month. 
Graduate assistantships are competitive and are determined on the 
basis of undergraduate and/or graduate grade point average, test 
scores, letters of recommendation, pertinent experience, educational 
preparation, interviews or a combination of these factors. Graduate 
assistants work in an academic department or administrative office 
of the college for 20 hours per week. Assistantships are intended to 
encourage and assist superior students in pursuing graduate study 
and in completing the requirements for graduate degrees in the 
minimum possible time. Graduate research assistantships are 
also available. 



Graduate Research Assistantship 

Fully admitted full- and part-time graduate students may apply to 
the Graduate Research Assistantship program. Graduate Research 
Assistantships are designed to link a graduate student together 
with a professor in a meaningful research project, which will be one 
semester or one academic year in duration. During the assistant- 
ship period, a graduate research assistant will work directly with a 
professor on a joint project, which will lead to a presentation at a 
professional conference and/or a joint publication. The research as- 
sistant will have the equivalent of a "half" assistantship, in that the 
student will work ten (10) hours per week with a professor, be paid 
a half-stipend ($3,000 per year), and have tuition/fees remission for 
six (6) graduate credits per semester. 



Graduation Application 

Students should check with their advisers regarding exit requirements 
for their academic program, as requirements vary for each program. 
Students who are nearing the completion of their graduate program 
requirements and who plan to receive a master's degree or CAGS in 
January, May or August, should complete an Application to Graduate 
form. These forms should be completed by students, approved by the 
faculty advisers and program coordinators, and submitted with the can- 
didates' Graduate Program Proposal forms to the School of Graduate 
Studies office on or before the appropriate application deadline. 

February 1 May graduation 

June 1 August graduation 

October 1 January graduation 

Failure to file an application before the deadline may postpone 
degree conferral. Any questions regarding graduate commence- 
ment ard requirements should be directed to the School of Graduate 
Studies at 508.531.1300. 



Graduation Dates 

The college has three graduation dates (May, August and January). 
Graduate students have a separate annual commencement cer-

emony. Students graduating in August and January are encouraged 
to attend the May commencement. In order to participate in a 
commencement ceremony, all required course work and exit require- 
ments must be completed. No degree or certificate will be conferred, 
and no graduate transcripts will be issued unless all tuition and fees 
have been paid in full. 



Graduation Requirements 

In order for students to exit from a graduate program, they must 
satisfactorily complete all credit requirements (with a minimum GPA 
of 3.0), and, in most programs, pass a comprehensive examination. 



Immunization Requirements for Graduate 
Students 

Immunization requirements apply to all full-time graduate students, 
regardless of age. To achieve full-time graduate student status, 
according to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Immunization 
Laws, students must receive nine or more credits from one institution 
in any one semester, regardless of the location of the course or the 
actual dates that the course or internship is held. 

Proof of immunizations must be provided by a physician or a prior 
school and must include the dates of: 

• two doses of measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) after the patient's 
first birthday and after 1 967 

• one dose of tetanus diphtheria (TD) within the last 1 years 

• three doses of hepatitis B 

Note: All newly enrolled part- and full-time graduate students 
must provide proof of meningitis immunization or waiver. Proof must be: 

• documentation of one dose of meningitis immunization within five 
years or 

• sign the meningitis waiver at www.bridgew.edu/HealthServices/ 
Health%20Form%20and%20 Meningitis%20Waiver.doc. 

The Health Services staff can assist you in meeting the requirements 
by offering immunizations and advice on how to be compliant with 
the law. Failure to comply places future registration for classes 
on hold until all requirements are met 

Please call Health Services at 508.53 1 . 1 252 to arrange an appoint- 
ment. 



Incomplete 

An incomplete (IN) may be given at the discretion of the instructor. 
The time by which missing work must be made up, in graduate and 
undergraduate courses, is also at the discretion of the instructor; 
however, this time period may not extend beyond the last day 
of classes of the academic semester following that in which the 
incomplete was earned. Courses that are not successfully completed 
by this deadline will automatically be changed to a grade of "F" 
(Failure) or "N" (No Pass). Candidates for graduation should note, 
however, that all work must be completed prior to graduation, 
including resolution of any grades of incomplete, since as of the date 
the degree is conferred the record is finalized. 



Independent or Directed Study 

Graduate students are allowed to undertake an independent or 
directed study under the supervision of a faculty member. The course 
Directed Study XXXX 503 (credit to be arranged) is designed for 
graduate students who desire to study selected topics in their fields. 
Directed study may not be used to substitute for courses that are 
required in the program or to study topic that are covered in required 
or elective courses in the program. 

Directed study follows the same registration procedures as all academic 
course work on campus; that is, arrangement for directed study must 
take place prior to the time of registration with all forms completed and 
on file at the appropriate departmental office. Enrollment in directed 
study is limited to students who have been accepted to a graduate 
program at Bridgewater State College and who have completed a mini- 
mum of 1 5 approved graduate credits. 



Program and Course Prerequisites 

Program and course prerequisites may be required to ensure ade- 
quate preparation for graduate work in the area of study. In certain 
cases, program prerequisites may be fulfilled after the applicant's 
acceptance by the School of Graduate Studies. Certain advanced 
courses may require that students have completed specific prerequi 
site courses. 



Research 

A graduate program may require enrollment in the course Research 
XXXX 502 (credit to be arranged) or PSYC 504 for Psychology for 
completion of original research undertaken by graduate students 
in their field. The students' investigations ordinarily culminate in a 
thesis. The number of credits awarded for the research may vary and 
students may repeat the course until a maximum of nine credits in 
an MA program and six credits in an MAT, MEd, MPA, MS or CAGS 
program is earned toward the minimum credit requirements for the 
degree or certificate. Consent of department and formal application 
required. 



Satisfactory or Reasonable Progress 

Graduate students must make satisfactory or reasonable progress 
toward completion of their degree programs within the college's 
statute of limitations. Students who are not making such progress 
are subject to separation from their programs. 



Statute of Limitations-Program and Courses 

All graduate program requirements, including the compre- 
hensive examination, must be completed within six years of the 
date of the student's acceptance. In addition, no graduate course 
offered for master's degree or CAGS credit may be more than six 
years old at the time program requirements are completed. 

If graduate students cannot complete degree requirements within 
the six-year limit because of extraordinary circumstances, they may 
file written appeals, requesting a reasonable extension from the 
School of Graduate Studies.

School of Graduate Studies 



Thesis 

A number of departments require or recommend theses in master's 
degree programs. A thesis, which represents original research in a 
discipline, is especially recommended if students have future doctoral 
plans. At the same time, theses allow graduate students, working 
closely with thesis committees, to spend serious academic time 
researching a narrowly focused topic in depth and produce an origi- 
nal text, of publishable quality. The culmination is often a text that 
gives students great academic pride and satisfaction. 

Students writing master's theses must adhere to the following 
policies: 

(1) All graduate students writing master's theses must have a thesis 
committee, consisting of a thesis committee chair and two faculty 
readers. The thesis committee must be approved by the graduate 
coordinator. 

(2) The student writing a thesis must submit a Thesis Proposal Form, 
with a detailed proposal and signatures of the thesis chair, the 
two faculty readers, the graduate coordinator and the dean of the 
School of Graduate Studies. (The Thesis Proposal Form is avail- 
able for download on the School of Graduate Studies Web page.) 
This form must be completed and signed in order for students to 
register for the appropriate research course, which is always the 
departmental XXXX 502 or PSYC 504 Research course. Students 
must register for at least six credits of XXXX 502, but the credits 
can be broken into smaller credit segments and taken over mul- 
tiple semesters, particularly if students need a full academic year 
to write their theses. Otherwise, students can register for the full 
six credits during one semester. 

(3) After students obtain the necessary signatures, they then take the 
Thesis Proposal Form to the Registrar's Office to register for the 
XXXX 502 or PSYC 504 Research course. 

(4) Students who have registered for the XXXX 502 or PSYC 504 
Research course and do not complete their theses in a semester 
will receive an Incomplete, which will be changed to a letter grade 
by the theses chairpersons once the theses are completed. 

(5) When the thesis is written and fully approved by the three mem- 
bers of the thesis committee, the chairperson and readers sign the 
"approval page" of the thesis, which is placed in the text of the 
manuscript. 

(6) The thesis committee chairperson will acquaint graduate students 
with the manuscript form and style used in their respective disci- 
plines; graduate students writing theses should examine recent 
theses in their academic departments. 

(7) The student must provide the School of Graduate Studies with 
a minimum of four copies of the thesis to be bound: one for the 
Maxwell Library, one for the School of Graduate Studies, one for 
the students' academic department and one for the student. 
(Sometimes departments request an additional bound copy.) 
Students may also request additional bound copies of their theses. 

(8) Copies of the completed manuscript must be brought to the 
School of Graduate Studies, which will arrange for the binding of 
the copies. A charge of $ 1 2 for each copy will be paid by the gradu- 
ate students. Students pick up their bound copies in the School of 
Graduate Studies. 



(9) Theses must be submitted to the School of Graduate Studies 
before students are approved for graduation. 

(1 0) The Maxwell Library, which will catalog all theses, acts as the official 
archive for all theses written as part of graduate-degree programs 
at Bridgewater State College. 



Transfer Credit 

Transfer credit at the graduate level is defined by the School of 
Graduate Studies at Bridgewater State College to include two distinct 
credit situations. First, transfer credit is defined as being any appropri- 
ate graduate credit taken at Bridgewater State College prior to the 
student's first matriculation into a Bridgewater State College gradu- 
ate program. This credit includes appropriate graduate credit earned 
in courses in which the student is enrolled at the time of matricula- 
tion. Second, transfer credit is defined to include appropriate gradu- 
ate credit taken at an accredited institution other than Bridgewater 
State College prior to or after matriculation into a Bridgewater State 
College graduate program. 

The School of Graduate Studies limits the total number of graduate 
transfer credits to 6 in programs of fewer than 40 credits. In programs 
requiring 40 or more graduate credits, students may request to transfer 
up to 9 graduate credits. This limit of transfer credits includes 
courses taken at Bridgewater State College before matricula- 
tion and/or graduate courses taken at another accredited insti- 
tution before or after matriculation. It should be noted, however, 
that not more than 6 graduate credits, taken both prior to and after 
matriculation, can be transferred from other graduate schools (students 
should make every attempt to enroll in Bridgewater State College 
graduate courses). These credits include any credits earned in courses 
in which students are enrolled at the time of matriculation. It does not 
include prerequisites. Program exceptions are noted in the appropriate 
department sections of this catalog. 

Approval of transfer credit is subject to the following conditions: 1 ) 
that not more than 6 credits being transferred are from an accredited 
institution other than Bridgewater State College; 2) that a grade of B or 
better has been earned in all courses being transferred; 3) that courses 
being transferred have not been used to fulfill the requirements of 
another degree or certificate; and 4) that graduate transfer credits may 
not be more than six years old at the time program requirements are 
completed. 

All courses to be used as transfer credit in a graduate program must 
have the approval of the students' advisers and program coordinators 
priorlo submitting for final approval to the School of Graduate Studies. 
Transfer credit should also be properly recorded on the students' 
Graduate Program Proposal forms. An official transcript of courses 
taken at another accredited institution must be on file in the School of 
Graduate Studies. 

BSC has two forms used for acceptance of transfer credit. The Pre- 
Matriculation Transfer Credit form is for courses being requested to 
transfer from within Bridgewater State College. The Graduate Transfer 
Credit form is for courses being requested to transfer from an accred- 



Note: See Catalog Web Addenda at www.bridgew.edu/catalog/addenda/ as that information supersedes the published version of this catalog.

School of Graduate Studies 




ited institution of/ierthan Bridgewater State College. Blank copies of 
both forms are sent to students in their matriculation packages by the 
School of Graduate Studies. Students are strongly urged to process their 
forms for transfer credit early in their graduate program. 



Withdrawal from Courses 

Students may withdraw from courses following the drop/add period if 
they submit a Course Withdrawal form to the Registrar 1 s Office by the 
appropriate semester deadline date, which is posted at www.bridgew. 
edu/Registrar/dropaddwithdraw.cfm.The course withdrawal form must 
be signed by the course instructor. Students should discuss any course 
withdrawal with their advisers. If graduate students fall below full-time 
status after withdrawing from a course, they should be aware that eligibil- 
ity for some sources of financial aid and health insurance may be affected. 

The Course Withdrawal Schedule is as follows: 

• The Withdrawal period for 1 5-week semester courses ends the week- 
day following the completion of the 1 th week of the semester. 

• The Withdrawal period for 7-week courses ends the weekday follow- 
ing the completion of the 5* week of the quarter. 

• The Withdrawal period for 5-week courses ends the weekday fol- 
lowing the completion of the 3 rd week of the session. 

• The Wthdrawal period for 1 0-week summer courses ends the 
weekday following the completion of the 7 th week of the session. 

• The Withdrawal period for non-regular courses typically ends one 
weekday following the point when approximately 70% of the course 
has been completed. Students should consult the Registrar's Office 
for exact deadlines for withdrawal from these courses. 

• Students who are taking a course on-line or off-campus must meet 
established deadlines and procedures. 

No withdrawals will be permitted after these deadlines unless 
students can demonstrate that extraordinary circumstances have 
prevented them from withdrawing from the course by the published 
deadline. Course withdrawals will be indicated on students' tran- 
scripts with a "W" and will not affect the calculation of students' 
grade point averages. 



Withdrawal from the College 

Students who decide to withdraw from a graduate program should 
notify the School of Graduate Studies of their intentions in writing as 
soon as possible. (Students should also consult course withdrawal 
procedures and refund policies indicated elsewhere in the catalog.)

The department provides a strong liberal arts curriculum aimed 
at developing well-rounded, informed citizens with strong criti- 
cal thinking abilities. Department programs also impart skills to 
students, preparing them for a wide range of professions. The 
department encourages students to continue on to graduate 
study. 

Many department faculty members engage in research and the 
department encourages student-faculty collaborative research. 
Students may also carry out internships. The public archeology 
concentration requires that students participate in field work or 
laboratory work, and the department offers a summer archaeo- 
logical field school. 

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science 

Anthropology, the scientific study of humankind, allows students 
to build cross-cultural understandings through an intensive study 
of other cultures. Anthropology is traditionally divided into five 
sub-fields: cultural anthropology, archaeology, physical (or biologi- 
cal) anthropology, applied anthropology, and linguistics. A major in 
anthropology provides students with an understanding of societies 
and cultures throughout the world. Students majoring in anthro- 
pology are prepared to understand and work with individuals from 
other cultural settings, in health care, social services and public 
welfare agencies; or as teachers, museum curators, environmental- 



ists, or in private industry. Students may select a BA in cultural 
anthropology or general anthropology, or a BS in public archaeol- 
ogy. Students may also combine a major in anthropology with an 
education major. 

Cultural Anthropology Concentration 

Students taking the cultural anthropology concentration are 
introduced to three of the five anthropology sub-fields along 
with upper division area studies and topically focused courses. 
Cultural anthropology uses a comparative, cross-cultural method 
to understand human culture and its variations. Cultural an- 
thropologists draw on quantitative and qualitative data in their 
research, based on first hand participant observation fieldwork 
and interviews. 

Public Archaeology Concentration 

The public archaeology concentration provides the basic knowl- 
edge and training necessary for careers in contract archaeology 
and to the study of federal, state, and local legislation protect- 
ing archaeological resources. The concentration relies heavily on 
cognate courses in geology and geography. 

General Anthropology Concentration 

The general anthropology concentration introduces students to 
four of anthropology's five major subfields: cultural, biological, 
archaeological, and applied anthropology. This concentra- 
tion will expose students to a thorough understanding of the 
breadth and depth of anthropology, with an opportunity to see 
how anthropological ideas and methods are used to address 
human problems. Students will be well prepared to bring an- 
thropological skills to the work place or to enter a broad based 
graduate program in anthropology.

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 
Bachelor of Arts 

The Department of Art offers six concentrations: 
Art Education 
Art History 
Crafts 
Fine Arts 
Graphic Design 
Photography 

The undergraduate program offers a broad-based training in 
the visual arts. In addition to course work, internships give 
first-hand experience in such areas as graphic design, museol- 
ogy, exhibition planning, and community art programs. Students 
planning to pursue graduate study at some point in their careers 
should work closely with their advisers to select appropriate 
course work beyond the 36-hour requirements of the major, 
thus earning themselves a competitive edge in the application 
process at the graduate level. 



Students interested in teaching art must select a minor in 
secondary education. However, state-mandated requirements 
for teacher training are subject to change, so it is necessary to 
consult with Professor Dorothy Pulsifer regarding up-to-date 
requirements. Prospective teachers of art are encouraged to join 
the student chapter of the National Art Education Association. 

Art majors not interested in an education minor are encour- 
aged to select a minor complementing their interests within the 
major. Students who are not art majors, wishing to minor in art 
or art history will find a diversity of course offerings suitable 
to their interests and skills. To insure an appropriate selection 
of art courses in the major or minor, it is important that each 
student work closely with his or her art adviser or the depart- 
ment chairperson in program selection. 

A student majoring in art must achieve a grade of C- or better 
in all of the required courses within the art program, repeating 
courses if necessary to achieve the required grade. 

Students should be aware that typically there are additional 
hours outside of class to complete course requirements and 
expenses for materials and tools in studio courses beyond the 
required fees. Field trips to museums, studios and commercial 
galleries in the region, in New York City, and at other sites are 
regularly a part of many art history and studio art courses, and 
include additional costs. 

A gallery calendar of changing exhibitions is maintained 
throughout the academic year in the Wallace L. Anderson 
Gallery within the art building. (One of these exhibitions is the 
student show, and art majors and minors are encouraged to 
set aside their best work to submit to this annual showing.) In 
an adjacent gallery is a continuing exhibition of works from the 
permanent art collection. These gallery facilities offer a range of 
work that enhances classroom instruction. In addition, visiting 
artists and related art programs are made possible each year by 
a generous gift from the Class of 1936.

The department offers an undergraduate program leading to the 
degree of Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts and a gradu- 
ate program leading to the degree of Master of Arts in Teaching. 
The goal of the undergraduate program is to provide students 
with broad backgrounds allowing for flexibility in making career 
choices. Students enrolled in the graduate program have the 
opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge in more 
specialized areas. 

The Bachelor of Science program is designed to provide 
the skills and knowledge necessary for employment in the 
biotechnology, environmental, health-related, and teaching 
areas, as well as providing a sound foundation for graduate or 
professional school. The Bachelor of Arts permits the student to 
explore personal interests in biology while developing the back- 
ground needed to use biological knowledge in association with 
a field such as sales, illustration, or elementary education. With 
careful course selection, this degree can prepare the student for 
the opportunities listed above for the Bachelor of Science. 



In addition to the broad array of biology courses, students have 
opportunities to join biology faculty in research projects, and to 
participate in internships, whether local, regional or out-of- 
state. 

The Department of Biological Sciences is located in the Conant 
Science Building. The department has 10 teaching laboratories, 
two lecture rooms, 3 faculty-student research areas, a biology 
museum-seminar room, a bioassay laboratory, an electron 
microscope laboratory and the South Shore Herbarium. The 
laboratories are well equipped to help students apply the 
theoretical principles of their courses. Equipment includes not 
only light microscopes but also automated nutrient analyzers, 
microtomes, a microplate reader, electrophoretic equipment, 
spectrophotometers and tissue cuture facilities. In addition, 
there is close cooperation between the biology and chemistry 
departments, so that other equipment may be shared. 

Located on the three acres next to the building are a 
20 x 80 foot greenhouse and the biology garden including a 
pond for aquatic plants. The greenhouse and gardens support 
laboratory and field work and are planted with specimens of 
horticultural interest. 

The location of the campus is a major advantage for conduct- 
ing field work and ecological studies. Within an hour's drive 
of the campus are such diverse habitats as bays, salt-marshes, 
sandy beaches, rocky shores, estuaries, bogs, freshwater ponds, 
streams and rivers (clean and polluted), white cedar swamps, 
marshes, pine groves and hemlock groves. 

The department maintains and operates the Watershed Access 
Laboratory and BSC City Lab located in the John Joseph Moak- 
ley Center for Technological Applications. These laboratories 
are designed for use in teacher professional development in 
environmental education and biotechnology and for interdisci- 
plinary studies by faculty and students 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

The two versions of the biology major are the Bachelor of 
Science in Biology (BS) and the Bachelor of Arts in Biology 
(BA). Each student majoring in biology will be assigned a 
departmental academic adviser from among the faculty of the 
department, and should consult with the adviser in regard to 
both the BS versus BA decision, and selection of courses. It is 
also important to frequently meet with the adviser to verify 
progress toward completion of graduation requirements. 

Bachelor of Science in Biology (BS) 

The department offers a BS degree program with three 
concentrations: environmental biology, biomedical/molecular

SCHOOL OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 



Biological Sciences

BRIDGEWATER 
STATE COLLEGE 



biology and general biology. Within the biomedical/molecular 
concentration, a student focuses on either the biomedical area 
or the molecular area. Within the general concentration, a 
student focuses on the standard program or the high school/ 
middle school teacher preparation program. All BS students are 
required to take a core of co jrses consisting of General Biology 
I and II, Cell Biology, Ecology, Genetics and Microbiology. In 
consultation with the departmental adviser, each student selects 
additional courses that satisfy the requirements of his or her 
particular concentration. The Bachelor of Science is designed to 
prepare the student for employment as a biologist in a labora- 
tory or field setting, or for advanced training at a graduate or 
professional institution. 

The Environmental Biology concentration presents course 
work in such areas as wetlands biology, biomonitoring, 
freshwater ecology and marine mammal biology. This program 
encourages students to use their biology electives to develop a 
diversified background of skills as well as recommended elec- 
tives in other departments to complement their environmental 
interest and open future opportunities for internships and 
careers. Cooperative programs with community environmental 
monitoring organizations such as the Taunton River Watershed 
Alliance allow students to gain practical experience while inves- 
tigating actual environmental problems. 

The Biomedical/Molecular Biology concentration offers course 
work in such fields as histology, immunology, virology, embryol- 
ogy, biochemistry, molecular biology and electron microscopy. 
The two areas within this concentration are distinguished by 
their physiology courses: the biomedical area includes courses in 
Human Anatomy and Physiology, while the molecular area offers 
the option of Animal Physiology or Plant Physiology. The biomedi- 
cal area prepares students for health-related pursuits such as 
laboratory or clinical work, or health-professional schools. The 
molecular area is designed for students who plan on graduate 
study in cellular or molecular biology, and for those who seek 
a career in molecular biology or biotechnology laboratory work 
or research. Biomedical/Molecular Internship opportunities are 
available in local hospitals and research laboratories as well as 
national agencies. 

The General Biology concentration is a broad program of 
biological study without defined specialization/The standard pro- 
gram provides a wide-ranging background together with courses 
that are tailored to the student's individual interests. The high 
school/middle school teacher preparation program is designed 
to provide the breadth of knowledge required for earning Mas- 
sachusetts teacher licensure and helping middle and high school 
pupils meet Massachusetts educational standards.

Honors Program 

The Departmental Honors Program in Biology provides an 
opportunity for highly-qualified biology majors to study biology 
and to conduct independent research in biology for honors 
credit. Interested students should contact the Department of 
Biological Sciences by their sophomore year for further informa- 
tion concerning eligibility and application. 



Undergraduate Research 

The Department of Biological Sciences provides the opportunity 
for students to participate in a true research experience, which 
is increasingly an advantageous component of undergraduate 
training. 

Each semester, BIOL 396 Research Problems in Biology and 
BIOL 497 Undergraduate Biological Research are offered by 
faculty members who direct and supervise either individuals or 
a small team of undergraduates in a research project. Students 
are intimately involved with experimental design as well as data 
collection, analysis and interpretation. The course culminates 
with a student presentation of the semester's work in a depart- 
mental seminar. These courses are often followed by a presenta- 
tion at a professional scientific meeting. Research topics vary 
from semester to semester as different faculty members direct 
the research course; equally valuable training and experience in 
scientific methodology is obtained with all topics. The Depart- 
ment of Biological Sciences highly recommends this experience 
which adds a profitable dimension that is not provided by 
ordinary course work. 



Biology Internship 

Biology students interested in developing a field or laboratory 
experience through BIOL 498 Internship in Biology must meet 
the following criteria to be considered: 

1 . Prior completion of at least 54 credits and at least two 
semesters of biology at Bridgewater State College. 

2. Minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA overall, and 2.7 GPA in 
biology. 

3. Prior agreement of a faculty member to act as faculty super- 
visor and oversee the specific internship. 

4. Submission of a completed internship application form to 
the department chairperson by the middle of the semester 
preceding the internship. 

A list of internship opportunities may be accessed at the biology 
department Web site.

monwealth of Massachusetts. The MAT program is designed to 
meet the "appropriate master's degree" requirement, which 
is part of the criteria for professional stage licensure, as set 
forth in the most recent DOE licensure regulations. This degree 
program will also appeal to secondary school teachers who 
already hold a standard level of professional license and want 
to acquire additional knowledge and a master's degree in the 
discipline. 

Students should consult the School of Graduate Studies section 
of the catalog for information regarding graduate program 
procedures. 

Admission Requirements

upon four years of work or a 3.0 undergraduate 
GPA based upon work completed during the 
junior and senior years 

2. ) A composite score of 900 on the quantitative 

and verbal parts of the GRE General Test 

3. ) An initial teaching license 

4. ) Three appropriate letters of recommendation 

5. ) Official transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate 

course work 

All accepted students must enroll under the direction of their

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science 

The chemistry major, with a concentration in biochemistry, 
environmental chemistry, or professional chemistry, leads to the 
BS degree. These programs are designed for students who plan 
a career as a professional chemist or biochemist either imme- 
diately after graduation or after graduate work in a chemically 
related discipline. Satisfactory performance (a 3.0 average or 
better) in any of these programs gives students the preparation 
required to obtain an assistantship or fellowship in graduate 
school. The biochemistry and the professional chemistry pro- 
grams are both certified by the American Chemical Society. 

The chemistry major (without a concentration) leads to the 
BA degree. This program is designed for students who wish to 
prepare for fields such as medicine, dentistry, secondary school 
teaching, chemical or pharmaceutical sales, pharmacy, envi- 
ronmental sciences or veterinary medicine. A minimum number 
of chemistry courses are required so that a program of other 
courses suited to the individual's interests may be developed in 
consultation with the student's adviser. 

Additionally, the department offers a chemistry-geology major 
jointly with the Department of Earth Sciences. It also partici- 
pates in preprofessional advising for students interested in 
medicine and dentistry or oceanography. Additional informa- 
tion may be found in the "Interdisciplinary and Preprofessional 
Programs" section of this catalog. 

Students interested in any of the programs offered by the 
department should enroll in CHEM 141 Chemical Principles I 
and calculus (MATH 1 51 or MATH 141) in the fall semester of 
their first year. Additionally, students interested in biochemistry 
should also enroll in BIOL 1 21 . In the spring semester of the 
first year, students will normally take CHEM 100 Computers in 
Chemistry in addition to continuing with CHEM 142 Chemical 
Principles II and the second semester of calculus. Students need 
not decide among the various programs within the department 
until the spring of their second year. Because of the sequential 
nature of many courses required in our programs we urge new 
students to consult with a chemistry faculty member in addition 
to the regular freshman advisers during the first year registra- 
tion process.

The Department of Criminal Justice offers a major program in 
criminal justice and a minor in criminal justice. 

The department provides a rigorous discipline-specific curricu- 
lum aimed at developing well-rounded graduates with strong 
critical thinking abilities. Department programs also impart skills 
to students, preparing them for a wide range of career options 
in the field of criminal justice or closely related fields. Career 
options include positions in the criminal justice system, educa- 
tion, research, private treatment agencies and various state and 
federal justice agencies. The department encourages students to 
continue on to graduate study. 

Many department faculty members engage in research and the 
department encourages student-faculty collaborative research. 
Students may also carry out internships. 

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 
Bachelor of Science 

The Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice provides students 
with a solid background in criminal justice and criminology, 
enabling them to develop a broad understanding of crime and 
the criminal justice system. The department developed the 



criminal justice program to meet the standards for criminal 
justice programs designed by the Massachusetts Board of 
Higher Education (BHE).The same standards are also affirmed 
by the Academy of Criminal Justice (ACJS). Program standards 
emphasize the development of skills in critical thinking, com- 
munications, conceptualizing ideas, and understanding criminal 
justice data. Students take courses in seven broad areas identi- 
fied by the BHE as essential for criminal justice programs: 1) 
Administration of Justice; 2) Crime Theory; 3) Law Enforcement; 
4) Criminal Law, and 5) Corrections; 6) Ethics; and 7)Research 
and Analytic Methods.

'Interdisciplinary Minor 

The Department of Earth Sciences offers several undergraduate 
programs in the earth and environmental sciences. Majors in 
the BS earth sciences program may elect a concentration in en- 
vironmental geosciences or geology. The BA or BS earth science 
programs may also be taken as a double major with education. 
In addition, a program in chemistry-geology, and a preprofes- 
sional program in oceanography are available. 

The Earth Sciences faculty have a wide range of expertise within the 
geosciences and are actively engaged in research. The department 
includes faculty with extensive background and experience in the 
realm of field work, laboratory investigations, and theoretical work, 
including computer modeling. This diversity supports a modern cur- 
riculum and provides numerous opportunities for students to extend 
their education beyond the confines of the traditional classroom. 

Departmental faculty collaborate with scientists from other aca- 
demic institutions to increase the number and variety of research 
opportunities for students. One member of the faculty is a Guest 
Investigator at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. This 
appointment generates research opportunities for students in marine 
geochemistry, geology, and oceanography and includes sea-going 
expeditions. Another faculty member collaborates with the Earth 
Resources Laboratory in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and 




Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The 
latter collaboration creates student research opportunities in geo- 
physics, which includes projects focused on earthquake generation. 
The research program of a third faculty member enables additional 
undergraduate research opportunities in the fields of petrology and 
tectonics with a focus on the geology of both the Appalachian and 
Rocky Mountains. The department also supports research within the 
realm of sedimentology and paleontology. This includes course-based 
research projects involving both field investigations and laboratory 
analysis of sediment transport and deposition, particularly within the 
coastal environment. 

The department has a long history of active engagement within the 
cutting-edge field of remote sensing and supports these activities 
with both traditional courses and numerous applied research oppor- 
tunities. In this regard, the department has been selected as the only 
one in the state college system in Massachusetts to participate in the 
National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) sponsored 
Joint Venture (JOVE) program.This distinction led to collaborations 
with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory on remote sensing projects in 
Mexico, Alabama, and Southeastern Massachusetts and the Goddard 
Space Flight Center on bolide impacts. Similar research projects, 
performed by both faculty and undergraduate students, are on-going 
today. 

The department is committed to providing undergraduate students 
the opportunity to perform research with a faculty mentor. Each year, 
earth science students are involved in research and present their 
work at professional conferences organized by both regional and 
national geologic organizations. These opportunities help to propel 
our students into rewarding careers and excellent graduate programs. 

Modern equipment supports the department's curriculum, including 
laboratory courses and undergraduate research projects. This equip- 
ment includes: (1 ) an X-ray Diffractometer with powder cameras, 
(2) thin sectioning equipment; (3) new polarizing and stereoscopic 
microscopes; (4) a research grade Olympus polarizing microscope 
complete with a digital camera and image analysis software; (5) a 
proton procession magnetometer; (6) a seismic refraction unit; (7) 
an AS-I earthquake seismometer; (8) a Frantz Isodynamic Separator; 
(9) a 14-foot coastal research vessel; (10) a portable gamma-ray 
spectrometer; (1 1) a portable visible-near infrared spectroradiometer 
(1 2) a Sunsparc 20 UNIX work station; (1 3) a SunBlade 1 50 UNIX 
workstation; (14) GPS surveying equipment and (15) groundwater 
and stream water sampling/monitoring equipment. 

Finally, our close relations with the Department of Chemical Sciences 
have facilitated access to more specialized instrumentation used to 
investigate geochemical problems. This includes an atomic absorption 
spectrometer, an ultraviolet- visible spectrophotometer and a gas 
chromatograph/mass spectrometer. 

In addition to course related laboratory spaces, the department has 
several smaller specialized laboratories to support research activi- 
ties. These include a well-equipped remote sensing laboratory, a

geochemistry and petrology laboratory, a fine particle sedimentology 
laboratory, and extensive facilities for the preparation of rock samples 
for numerous analyses. 

Earth sciences faculty are using Bridgewater State College's 
sophisticated computer facilities for classroom instruction, including 
demonstrating and displaying Web-based and self-authored material 
and models. In a growing number of courses, students may submit 
assignments online, and in some courses, a majority of class time is 
spent in "virtual classrooms." To learn more, visit the department 
Web site at www.bridgew.edu/depts/EarthSciences/. 

The department boasts an active Earth Sciences and Geography 
Club that sponsors both local (Museum of Comparative Zoology at 
Harvard University), regional (New Hampshire's White Mountains), 
national (Hawaii), and international (Canada, Iceland, Mexico) 
field trips. Students may also qualify for Sigma Gamma Epsilon, the 
national earth science honor society. 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



Earth Sciences Major 

The major in Earth Sciences is a solid broad-based program that 
provides the student with an understanding and appreciation 
of the physical aspects of the earth and earth processes. Career 
opportunities for graduates exist in federal, state and local 
government service, industry, and environmental studies both 
with regulatory agencies and consulting firms. Teaching in the 
elementary, middle and secondary schools is another option. 
Many of our earth science majors have been awarded full fel- 
lowships at leading graduate schools. In addition, the faculty 
have an extensive program of undergraduate research, and 
many students have presented the results of their undergradu- 
ate research at various national meetings. Some of this research 
has been funded, and students are encouraged to contact the 
faculty if interested. Internships are also available for those 
students desiring to prepare themselves for employment upon 
graduation. Interested students are encouraged to contact the 
earth science/geology faculty - Drs. Cicerone, Enright, Krol, 
Saccocia and Sulanowski - for more information about earth 
science/geology programs.

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Bachelor of Arts 

The program of study for English majors aims to enhance 
their appreciation and knowledge of literature and the writing 
process. Through exposure to significant literary works and to 
the tools for understanding and analyzing what they read and 
write, students will develop an understanding of the history 
and background of English-language literatures, including 
texts in translation central to the discipline. Coursework in the 
major includes offerings in culturally diverse English-language 
literatures with a foundation in British and American tradi- 
tions, embracing the writing process and critical analysis. This 
background prepares English majors to enter diverse careers 



or to pursue graduate study. Bridgewater State College English 
majors have achieved success in a wide variety of occupa- 
tions including teaching, banking, law, medicine, publishing, 
government service, public relations, technical writing, creative 
writing, advertising and business administration. 

Within the English major, students may also pursue a writing 
concentration or combine their program with licensure in 
elementary, middle school, or secondary education. 

The department offers an honors program for students who 
wish to pursue independent study culminating in a thesis. 

The department participates in interdisciplinary minors such 
as American Studies, Canadian Studies, Irish-American Studies 
and Women's Studies.

GRADUATE PROGRAMS 



Master of Arts 

The Master of Arts degree in English (MA) is designed for 
students pursuing advanced studies in English. Candidates in 
this degree program come from varied academic backgrounds. 
Some simply want to extend their undergraduate background 
and complete an MA in English, while others are destined for 
a PhD and a college teaching career. A number of our MA stu- 
dents are already certified teachers in private or public schools 
and want an advanced degree in English for professional 
reasons. Finally, a small number simply want to acquire the MA 
as an end in and of itself. 

Admission Requirements 

1) A minimum undergraduate GPA of 2.75 based 
upon four years of work or a 3.0 undergraduate 
degree GPA based upon work completed in the 
junior and senior years 

2) A composite score of 900 on the quantitative 
and verbal parts of the GRE General Test 

3) Three appropriate letters of recommendation 

4) An undergraduate major in English, with at least 
24 credits in the discipline, is generally 
required for admission to this program. 
Students with deficient academic backgrounds 
are sometimes accepted into the program with 
the stipulation that these deficiencies be made 
up before work actually credited to the degree 
program begins 

5) Official transcripts of all undergraduate and 
graduate course work 

Degree Requirements 

Thirty-three (33) credits at the 500 level distributed as follows: 

Credits 

ENGL 500 Introduction to Graduate Study in English 

(To be taken early in the student's program) 3 

Three courses in literary periods, figures, or genres 9 

One course in ethnic or culturally diverse literature 3 

One course in literary theory 3 

One course in writing 3 

Two elective courses in literature and/or writing 6 

The remaining course requirements (6 credits) can be satisfied 
by completing one of the following two research options: 

Thesis Option 

Students who choose this option will research and write a 
thesis, a work of independent scholarship, which demonstrates 
their ability to apply the knowledge and scholarly tools ac- 
quired during their degree work. Students who want to pursue 
doctoral work in English are strongly encouraged to choose 
the thesis option. Those who choose to write a thesis should 



consult the graduate coordinator and adviser to select a thesis 
director and committee, then write a thesis proposal, and reg- 
ister for ENGL 502 Research (6 credits). The thesis must be fully 
accepted by the thesis director and thesis committee. 

Non-Thesis Option 

Students who choose not to write a thesis must complete the 
non-thesis option by fulfilling both of the following require- 
ments: 

1 . Students must enroll in two additional three-credit 500- 
level elective courses in literature and/or writing (total 6 
credits). 

2. Students are also required to submit two long seminar 
papers for evaluation by the Graduate Committee. For this 
purpose students should select their two best seminar 
papers written during their graduate program of study. 
(These papers should be clean, i.e., without the professors' 
comments and grades.) Subject to the acceptance by the 
Graduate Committee, the seminar papers will be placed in 
the student's folder in the department. 

Total minimum credits: 33 

Additional Degree Requirements 

A Foreign Language Reading Proficiency Test (An intermedi- 
ate-level reading/translation test in a foreign language of 
the student's choice; the student may use a foreign language 
dictionary during the test.) 

A Comprehensive Examination 
(Taken after course work is completed) 



Master of Arts 

Creative Writing Concentration 

This program is designed to provide students with the intense study 
of the art and craft of creative writing. Students who intend to pur- 
sue the MFA in English, a career in editing or journalism, or wish to 
explore their potential as a professional writer will find this option 
particularly beneficial. 

Admission Requirements 

In addition to the admission requirements for the Master of Arts 
in English, students who wish to pursue the Creative Writing 
Concentration must also submit a creative writing sample. Poets 
should submit 1 to 1 2 poems. Prose writers should submit 
between 20 and 40 pages of fiction or creative fiction. 

Students not admitted specifically for the Creative Writing

The Department of Geography offers an undergraduate major 
in geography. Majors in Geography may double major with 
education. Majors in geography may elect a concentration 
in environmental geography, geotechnology or regional and 
economic planning or double major with education. In addi- 
tion, programs in chemistry-geology, oceanography and urban 
affairs and planning are available. The department is also 
active in the Asian studies minor, the Canadian studies minor, 
the Russian and East European studies minor, the urban affairs 
minor, and the women's studies minor, as well as the Graduate 
Certificate in Planning. See the "Interdisciplinary and Prepro- 
fessional Programs" section of this catalog. 

The department works actively with state and regional agen- 
cies on socioeconomic and environmental problems. Past fac- 
ulty research projects include coastal storm impacts, regional 
economic developments, transportation planning, the impact of 
PCBs in New Bedford Harbor, and the search for water supplies 
for the next century. 

The department has been involved with assisting local orga- 
nizations through faculty research and student internships. 
Examples of such involvement are with local banks, planning 
agencies, retailers, Boston's "Big Dig", the Massachusetts Bay 
Transit Authority (MBTA), the Massachusetts Forest Fire Bureau, 
the Natural Resources Trust of Bridgewater, and the Ocean 
Spray Cranberry Cooperative. 



Additionally, this department has been selected as the only 
department in the state college system in Massachusetts to 
participate in the National Aeronautics and Space Administra- 
tion (NASA) sponsored Joint Venture (JOVE) program. Members 
of the faculty collaborate with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory 
(on multi-spectral and hyperspectral remote sensing in Mexico, 
Alabama, and Southeastern Massachusetts), the Goddard 
Space Flight Center (on bolide impact), the U.S. Department 
of Transportation (on a national study of bus systems), Woods 
Hole Oceanographic Institution (on research problems in 
marine geochemistry and geology), the Massachusetts Depart- 
ment of Education (on statewide curriculum reform) and the 
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (on wetlands). Faculty are also 
involved in watershed studies in cooperation with biology de- 
partment faculty at the Raytheon Watershed Access Laboratory. 
In addition, a member of the faculty has an appointment as 
guest investigator at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution 
on Cape Cod and has research opportunities for students in 
marine geochemistry and geology. Two other professors are 
actively engaged in statewide curriculum reform. The geogra- 
phy faculty maintains the Southeastern Massachusetts Global 
Education Center's Resource Center. 

A program leading to the degree of Master of Arts in Teaching 
(MAT) with a concentration in earth sciences is offered by the 
department. A MAT in Social Sciences with an emphasis on 
geography is available in cooperation with the history depart- 
ment. 

Modern equipment enables the department to offer inves- 
tigation oriented laboratory experience. This equipment 
includes: (1) an X-ray Diffractometer with powder cameras; 
(2) thin section equipment; (3) polarizing and stereoscopic 
microscopes; (4) atomic absorption spectro-photometer; (5) 
a proton procession magnetometer; (6) earth resistivity unit;

sensing laboratory, and a cartographic laboratory with a large 
format digitizer planimeter, a climatological station with solar 
radiation recording instrumentation, a solar greenhouse class- 
room at the Burnell Campus School, an astronomy observa- 
tory, a wet geochemistry laboratory, and a wet, as well as dry, 
sedimentology laboratory. Finally, this department has access 
to a scanning electron microscope through the Southeastern 
Massachusetts Consortium.

and self-authored material and models. In a growing number 
of courses, students may submit assignments online, and in 
some courses, a majority of class time is spent in "virtual class- 
rooms." To learn more, visit the department Web site at www. 
bridgew.edu/depts/Geography. 

The department boasts an active Earth Sciences and Geogra- 
phy Club that sponsors both local (Harvard Mineral Museum), 
regional (New Hampshire's White Mountains), national (Ha- 
waii), and international (Iceland, Mexico) field trips. Students 
may also qualify for Gamma Theta Upsilon the international 
geography honor society. 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM 

Geography Major (BA or BS) 

A major or minor in geography can provide a student with a 
way to examine the world with objectivity. The student can be 
trained to analyze the water-use and land-use opportunities 
in your communities, to understand the interrelated systems 
which keep the land and sea resources in balance, and to 
appreciate the varied ways in which people all over the world 
use those resources. Bridgewater State College graduates 
have found employment as planners, environmental analysts, 
teachers, market researchers, cartographers and administrators. 
Many of our geography majors have gone on to earn advanced 
degrees from leading graduate schools.

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Bachelor of Arts 

The department offers students a solid, liberal arts major as 
preparation for professional careers, for graduate study in other 
fields (law and librarianship, for example) and for careers as mu- 
seum professionals and public historians. It prepares students to 
teach history at the middle and high school level, and it provides 
a relevant and valuable liberal arts major to students preparing 
for careers in elementary, early childhood and special education. 
It also contributes to the general education program by offering 
history courses to all students. 

The Department of History recommends that its majors select 
a minor or interdisciplinary program that will complement the 
major program. History majors electing secondary education 
are strongly urged to take elective courses in geography, politi- 
cal science, economics and the behavioral sciences in order to 
meet present employment expectations. 



History Major 

No grade lower than a "C-" in a history (HIST) course may be 
used to fulfill the requirements for the history major. Students 
receiving a "D" or "F" in a history course may continue as

Degree Program 

• BA in Philosophy 
Concentration: Applied Ethics 

Undergraduate Minor 

• Philosophy 

The Department of Philosophy offers a major leading to the 
Bachelor of Arts degree. A minor in philosophy is also available. 
The program in philosophy provides a solid foundation for 
entry into careers such as law, journalism, college teaching, 
management, and medical ethics, as well as preparation for 
graduate work in philosophy and related disciplines. 

The study of philosophy involves the development of a broad 
range of analytical, interpretive, evaluative and critical abilities 
as they are applied to a variety of theoretical and practical hu- 
man concerns. Courses in the problems, history, and methods 
of philosophy as a mode of critical thinking deal with questions 
about the priority of values, the status of knowledge, truth, and 
consciousness, the nature of art, religion, science and politics. 

The department offers numerous opportunities for students to 
excel, provides models of intellectual excellence, and fosters an 
atmosphere of mutual respect and open-mindedness. Faculty 
advisers work closely with students who wish to plan a course 
of study within the philosophy program. Academically talented 
students should contact the department chairperson for details 
about its honors program. Extracurricular activities include the 
Philosophy club, which gives students from all majors a chance 
to discuss philosophical topics in an open and constructive 
manner. The Club also sponsors the Bridgewater Journal of 
Philosophy, which publishes student research and essays.

However, philosophy courses at the 400 level, with the excep- 
tion of PHIL 499, may be taken for graduate credit with the 
consent of the Department of Philosophy. 

1 Upon admission to the departmental honors program, a 
student's philosophy major advisor will assume responsibility 
for advising the student in respect to the honors program. 

2 Students entering the Honors Program at or near the 
minimum GPA for admission should be aware that achieving 



higher grades in future philosophy courses will be neces- 
sary in order to eventually reach the 3.5 GPA in philosophy 
required for completing the Honors Program.

study in political science: a political science major (no concen- 
tration), a political science major (American politics concentra- 
tion), a political science major (international affairs concentra- 
tion), a political science major (legal studies concentration) and 
a political science major (public administration concentration). 

The political science major (no concentration) offers students 
an understanding of governmental structures and political 
processes in their own country and in other parts of the world. 
This program provides a foundation for graduate work in politi- 
cal science, public administration and international affairs, for 
the study of law, and for professional careers in teaching and 
in the public and private sectors. 



The political science major (international affairs concentra- 
tion) offers students an understanding of the structures 
and processes that govern political and economic relations 
among global actors. This program provides a foundation for 
graduate work in international politics, international business 
and economics, international law and organization, and for a 
professional career in these fields. 

The political science major (legal studies concentration) offers 
students a background for professional careers in the field of 
law. This program provides a foundation for law school and for 
paralegal studies. 

The political science major (American politics concentration) 
offers students a broad understanding of American politics. 
The concentration is designed to provide strong undergraduate 
scientific education in preparation for entry into advanced degree 
programs and professional careers in public service, private 
institutions and political organizations in the United States. 

The political science major (public administration concentration) 
prepares students for a career focus in the public and nonprofit 
sectors at the federal, state, and local levels. The concentration 
is designed for those students who wish to pursue a Master of

GRADUATE PROGRAMS 
Master of Public Administration 

The Department of Political Science offers the Master of Public 
Administration (MPA) degree. The MPA program provides 
professional education to prepare persons for leadership roles 
in public administration and public affairs at the federal, state 
and local levels with flexible career opportunities in both the 
public and nonprofit sectors. 

Program Description 
Course work 

The MPA program accommodates the needs of both pre-career 
students and in-career professionals by offering alternative pro- 
gram requirements that take into account the student's academic 
and professional background. Students with a bachelor's degree 
and no professional work experience are expected to complete a 
45 credit hour degree program (including six hours of profes- 
sional internship), while in-career professionals are expected to 
complete a 39 credit hour program. Up to six hours of appropri- 
ate graduate course work taken elsewhere may be transferred 
into the degree program. 

The MPA Curriculum 

Both pre-career and in-career students must complete a 24 
hour core curriculum component of the degree program. These 
courses are: 

Credits 

POLI 501 Introduction to Public Institutions and 

Administration 3 

POLI 510 Introduction to Research in Public 

Administration 3 

POLI 511 Program Evaluation and Policy Analysis 3 

POLI 521 Public Finance 3

All students are also required to complete 1 5 hours 
of electives of which 3 credits must be in POLI 506 Capstone 
Seminar in Public Administration professional development 
module. Pre-career students must complete an additional six 

hours in POLI 598 Internship in Public Administration 15 

Total minimum credits: 39 



Concentrations 

There are three areas in which an MPA candidate may concen- 
trate; elective courses are available in each of the areas. As an 
alternative to earning a degree within a concentration area, 
students may pursue a generalist MPA track. For students seek- 
ing to earn a degree in a concentration, a minimum of three 
elective courses must be taken in the substantive area. The 
substantive concentration areas are as follows: 

Financial Administration 

Municipal and Regional Development and Management 
Nonprofit Administration 

An additional three hours must be taken in three one-credit 
professional development modules. 

Admission Requirements: 

Detailed information about admissions is provided in the 
"School of Graduate Studies" section of the catalog. 

• A bachelor's degree from a four-year accredited college or 
university; If the degree has not yet been awarded at the 
time of application, the successful applicant must be nearing 
completion of the bachelor's degree 

• A minimum undergraduate GPA of 2.75, an acceptable GRE 
score and an interview with the MPA program faculty. To 
receive a clear admit status, MPA applicants must have a 
composite score of 900 or greater on the quantitative and 
verbal parts of the GRE General Test. To receive a conditional 
acceptance, MPA applicants must have a composite score 

of 700-899 on the quantitative and verbal parts of the GRE 
General Test 

• A resume 

• Three letters of recommendation should come from profes- 
sors or practitioners familiar with the student's academic 
ability. Students failing to meet the standard graduate 
admissions criteria may also be considered on a conditional 
basis of acceptance 

• Official transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate course 
work 

Contact the School of Graduate Studies to receive a catalog 
and application material. 

Exit Requirement 

The MPA program offers some degree of flexibility for exit 
from this program. All students are required to fulfill an exit 
requirement, which in most cases will require passing a written 
comprehensive examination. This one-day examination allows 
program faculty to test students' mastery of fundamental 
principles and issues covered in the core curriculum. Students 
must have completed at least 30 hours of the degree program 
to sit for the examination and will have two opportunities 
to pass the examination. In appropriate circumstances, such 
as a student interested in pursuing further graduate work at 



SCHOOL OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 



the doctoral level, a master's thesis may be substituted for 
the comprehensive examination. The master's thesis will be 
directed by a committee of three faculty members and be 
covered under the guidelines and regulations of the School of 
Graduate Studies at Bridgewater State College. 

Distinctive Features of the Program 

Professional Development Modules 

The program requires that students register for a minimum of 
three one-credit modules, offered each semester on topics of 
special relevance to public service. Normally these modules are 
taught on Saturdays during the semester. 

Internships 

A six-hour internship experience (depending upon professional 
experience) at the local, state or federal level is required for all 
pre-professional students and will be available as an elective 
for those professionals who wish to enhance their background.

tools for clinical professionals - e.g., in performing clinical out- 
come studies and program evaluations, and in staying current 
with the empirical literature. Students are exposed to a range 
of empirically supported therapeutic methods, with special em- 
phasis on cognitive-behavioral techniques. Experiential learning 
is an essential component of the program, with 1 5 credits of 
practica and internships required.

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Bachelor of Science 

The Department of Social Work offers an undergraduate 
program leading to the Bachelor of Science degree. A minor in 
social welfare is also available. The curriculum is designed to 
prepare students for beginning generalist professional practice 
in social work and other human service fields. Students learn 
social work methods, theories, values, and ethics for practice 
with various populations and, especially, with the region's 
diverse and vulnerable populations. The program builds on 
a liberal arts perspective, providing students with a founda- 
tion for critical thinking, effective communication, and ethical 
behavior that will be of daily importance to them in profes- 
sional practice. 

Career opportunities are vast and varied and include positions 
in child protective services, juvenile justice and mental health; 
domestic abuse, family court and probation; residential settings in 
chronic care and elder services. Social work majors also complete 
the program well prepared for graduate study and may be eligible 
for consideration for advanced standing at some graduate schools 
of social work. 



The college's social work department is accredited by the 
Council on Social Work Education, allowing graduates to apply 
for social work licensure in Massachusetts at the licensed so- 
cial worker (LSW) level after completing their bachelor's degree 
and at the LCSW level after completing their MSW degree. 

The program integrates theory with field experience through 
three required courses held in conjunction with a variety of 
community social service agencies. SCWK 250 Introduction 
to Social Welfare acquaints students with the field as they 
participate in 30 hours of community service in a social service 
agency. In SCWK 338 Introduction to Social Work Practice, stu- 
dents spend a minimum of 90 hours during one semester at an 
agency learning how it functions and about the professional 
roles of social workers. This course lays the foundation for 
the senior year field experience course (SCWK 498). The field 
experience meets from September through May and entails a 
minimum of 410 hours under the supervision of a professional 
social worker at the Master of Social Work level. Each of these 
courses is explained in detail in the "Course Descriptions" 
section of this catalog. 

Note: The Bachelor of Arts in Social Work is inactive.

Admission to the Social Work Program 

Admission Requirements: 

To be formally admitted to the social work program, a student 
must: 

1 . Meet with an assigned social work adviser. 

2. Complete a minimum of 36 hours of Core Curriculum 
Requirements that include ENGL 101 Writing I and ENGL 
102 Writing II, COMM 130 Human Communication Skills, 
SOC1 102 Introduction to Sociology, and a biology course 
(see list under Required Cognates). PSYC 100 Introductory 
Psychology is also required. 

3. Have completed 60 hours of course work with a minimum 
overall GPA of 2.5 and a minimum GPA of 2.7 in Social 
Work. Students with a GPA between 2.0 and 2.5 may peti- 
tion the social work program admissions committee that 
they be accepted into the major due to special circum- 
stances. If the decision of the committee is favorable, such 
students will be granted conditional acceptance to the 
program only. 

4. Have completed SCWK 250 and SCWK 270 with a social 
work course GPA (not including cognates) of 2.7 and no 
social work course grades below C-. Students falling slight- 
ly below these standards will have their grade performance 
reviewed by the social work program admission committee. 

5. Demonstrate competency in oral and written communica- 
tion since such skills are fundamental to and utilized in ev- 
eryday social work practice. Students must have completed 
ENGL 101 Writing I, ENGL 102 Writing II and COMM 130 
Human Communication skills with a minimum grade of C+ 
in each course. A grade of C or C- in one of these courses 
may be accepted if the student agrees to consult the 
Writing Center and give proof that basic skill problems in a 
given area are identified and addressed. 

6. Complete an application for admission to the social work 
program. This application includes basic biographical data, 
information on employment and volunteer experiences, 
and a two to four page self-evaluation of the student's 
interest, readiness and suitability for a career in social 
work. The purpose of the self-evaluation is to reflect the 
applicant's commitment to the goals and purposes of so- 
cial work. The application is available through the student's 
assigned faculty adviser in the Department of Social Work. 
The application should be reviewed by the student's

7. Submit a copy of his/her transcript that provides an up-to- 
date indication of cumulative and social work GPAs. 

8. Be successfully reviewed by the social work faculty. All 
information obtained through the admission process will 
be held in confidence. Knowingly making a false oral or 
written statement during the admission process could 
result in denial of admission to the program. 

9. Sign a statement indicating that he/she has read and will 
follow the National Association of Social Worker's Code 
of Ethics. This code is printed in the Encyclopedia of Social 
Work and is available through the NASW Web site (www. 
rtaswdc.org). 

Applicants are notified in writing by the social work program 
admissions committee about the outcome of the admission 
process. 

Only social work courses from four-year colleges accredited by 
the Council on Social Work Education will be granted equiva- 
lency credit with the possible exception of SCWK 250. Transfer 
students must provide evidence that these courses sufficiently 
correspond with the goals and objectives specified in courses 
within the Department of Social Work curriculum. Performance 
evaluations of any field work courses completed are also 
required. The only other course exception would be below-300 
level required social work course offered on an off-campus site 
by a Bridgewater State College social work faculty person or 
other CSWE qualified social work faculty, provided the course 
is fully duplicative of the same course in the Department of 
Social Work's curriculum as determined through the official 
articulated agreement by the faculty after review. 

Admission to SCWK 338 Introduction to Social Work 
Practice 

Students are eligible for admission to SCWK 338, the combined 
initial practice course and junior year field work experience, af- 
ter being formally admitted into the social work program. They 
should have completed SCWK 320 or be taking it concurrently. 
A GPA of 2.7 in social work courses and 2.5 overall must be 
achieved prior to admission to SCWK 338. Students must also 
complete the department's Junior Prospective Intern Data Form 
and the Practicum/lnternship Form required by the School of 
Arts and Sciences. 

The social work faculty's field education coordinator discusses 
the placement with the student and arranges for an agency 
contact. The student then meets with the agency supervisor 
to discuss the placement, mutual expectations and available 
learning opportunities. A final decision is reached by the field 
education coordinator after consultation with the student and 
the agency supervisor. Suggested readings and preplacement 
contacts are worked out on an individual basis. 



Admission to SCWK 498 Field Experience in 
Social Work 

A student is eligible for placement in SCWK 498, the 410+ 
clock hour senior year field work experience, after being 
formally admitted into the social work program and after com- 
pleting SCWK 320 and SCWK 338. In the spring semester each 
student applying for senior field placement is required to make 
an appointment with the field coordinator to discuss options 
and procedures. Applications are due no later than Feb. 1 5 for 
placement in the following fall. Placements are from September 
to May and are not available during the summer. Evening and 
weekend placements are not available. 

All applications for field placement are reviewed by the social 
work field education review committee. The needs, strengths 
and interests of the students, as well as availability of agency 
and program placement resources, are discussed. Additionally, 
each applicant is interviewed by the social work field coordina- 
tor. Issues of concern that may have been identified during the 
applicant's program admission interview, if needed, are to be 
addressed with the applicant. Goals for the student and pos- 
sible agency options are explored. A particular setting will be 
recommended on the basis of these variables. 

The field education coordinator discusses the placement 
with the student and arranges for an agency contact. The 
student then meets with the agency supervisor to discuss 
the placement, mutual expectations and available learning 
opportunities. A final decision is reached by the field education 
coordinator after consultation with the student and the agency 
supervisor. Suggested readings and preplacement contacts are 
worked out on an individual basis. 

It is recommended that each student join the National As- 
sociation of Social Workers during the semester prior to field 
placement. 

Retention in the Social Work Major 

Students must remain in full compliance with all requirements, 
policies and procedures of the Department of Social Work, the 
college and the Council on Social Work Education. Students 
may be terminated from the social work program if, in the 
professional judgement of the social work faculty, violations of 
professional and/or ethical codes have occurred. These viola- 
tions are discussed in detail in the department's admission, ter- 
mination and appeals policies and procedures. Dismissal from 
two field placements due to unacceptable performance and/or 
two or more failures in any social work course may result in the 
termination of the student from the social work program. All 
students wishing to pursue a major in social work are strongly 
urged to obtain a copy of this document from the Department 
of Social Work. Course work with a grade lower than C- must 
be repeated prior to graduation.

GRADUATE PROGRAM 



Master in Social Work 

Mission 

Bridgewater State College's Master in Social Work (MSW) 
program reflects the purposes of social work education nation- 
ally and internationally. The mission of the MSW program is to 
prepare advanced professional practitioners to address regional 
needs, promote social justice, and enhance the strengths and 
resilience of communities, families and individuals. The program 
will prepare advanced professionals who are grounded in 
resilience theory and a strengths-based approach for intergen- 
erational practice. This approach will work with client systems 
by building and reinforcing what is going right for people, and 
by using the client's strengths and resources to address areas 
of concern. Attention is given to the intergenerational system, 
to identify what can be done to effect change and strengthen 
relationships among individuals, groups, and community 
components in order to promote greater self-sufficiency and 
constructive functioning. 

The Curriculum 

In order to prepare graduates to work successfully with a 
variety of client systems often presenting multiple, complex 
problems, the MSW program provides a resilience theory and 
strengths-based approach for intergenerational practice that 
incorporates content on the profession's history, purpose and 
philosophy and a specific body of knowledge, values and skills. 
The curriculum emphasizes critical and creative thinking that 
enables alumni to initiate, adapt and evaluate interactions for 
the demographic and cultural groups in our region. 

The foundation year includes 30 credits with content on so- 
cial work values and ethics, diversity and social and economic 
justice, human behavior and the social environment, social 
welfare policy and services, social work practice, research and 
a field practicum. First-year students will take the following 
courses: 

Credits 



SCWK 500 Introduction to Social Welfare Policy: 

History, Programs and Issues 3 

SCWK 502 Dynamics of Diversity and Oppression 3 

SCWK 508 Introduction to Social Policy 3 

SCWK 510 Human Behavior in the Social Environment 1 3

Community-based Practice 3 

SCWK 540 Introductory Social Research 3 

SCWK 590 Field Practice and Seminar 1 3 

SCWK 591 Field Practice and Seminar II 3 



The advanced year, with 32 credits, broadens and deepens 
the foundation content while offering students choices among 
modules or quarter courses that introduce the skills needed 
to work with particularly vulnerable populations. In some in- 
stances, quarter courses may be combined with semester-long 
courses. Students may also use these electives to take graduate 
courses outside the Department of Social Work, such as those 
in the Master of Public Administration, Master of Science in 
Management, Master of Education in Health Promotion or 
other approved master's degree. 

The advanced year also offers an integrated seminar that will 
require students to draw on their foundation course work in 
human behavior in the social environment, research, policy 
and practice. The course will focus on two or three issues 
confronted by communities, families and/or individuals, such as 
the impact of managed care, confronting childhood poverty, or 
approaches to working with immigrants. Second year students 
take the following courses: 



SCWK 512 Human Behavior in the Social 

Environment III: DSM-IV-TR 3 

SCWK 541 Research: Evaluating Practice 3 

SCWK 550 Social Work Practice III: Intergenerational

through the School of Graduate Studies. Applications are 
due on February 1 for fall matriculation. 

2. An updated resume 

3. Official transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate 
course work 

4. A personal statement about interest in master's-level social

6. Standardized test scores such as the GREs and the MAT 
are not required, but students are welcome to submit such 
scores 

7. Minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.0 

The admission committee's decision will be based on the 
applicant's demonstrated academic ability, interpersonal skills, 
and self-awareness - indicators of the likelihood that the 
applicant can successfully complete the program. In addition, 
evidence of a commitment to the social work profession and 
to the mission of the Bridgewater State College MSW program, 
and of the likely contribution the applicant might make to the 
citizens of Southeastern Massachusetts will be assessed. Social 
work requires the ability to withstand difficult emotional chal- 
lenges, to work with people whose cultural backgrounds and/or 
personal values differ from one's own, and to practice in a de- 
manding and changing political and fiscal environment. Special 
attributes such as linguistic ability compatible with those in the 
region, a demonstrated commitment working with underserved 
populations, and particular skills such as those in research and 
policy implementation will be considered. 

Advanced Standing: Student seeking to enter the program 
in the second year with full advanced standing must meet all 
of the requirements listed above. In addition they must have 
earned a BSW or BA/BS in social work degree from a CSWE- 
accredited program within the last six years. Students who 
completed their BSW degrees more than six years ago will be 
evaluated individually to determine their preparedness for year 
II. Applicants who wish to transfer into the MSW program after 
completing year I elsewhere will also be considered for ad- 
vanced standing. Students entering with full advanced standing 
will begin their course work in the summer.

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Sociology 

The Bachelor of Arts in Sociology is the scientific study of human 
social relationships. It allows individuals to understand the 
connections between their own experiences and the society in 
which they live. In carrying on social life human beings interact 



with each other and construct patterns of relationships, groups, 
classes, institutions, and societies. Individuals shape those 
patterns and those patterns, in turn, shape individuals and 
their lives. In fact, the central insight of sociology is that social 
relationships and social interactions shape human behavior, 
attitudes, and resources. 

Sociology courses provide students with an understanding of 
how these social relationships arise, why they persist, what 
effects they have, and how they maintain social order or 
contribute to social change. Students learn the theories and re- 
search methods used in sociology. Students have opportunities 
to engage in collaborative research with faculty members or to 
participate in internships. These opportunities enable students 
to deepen and apply what they have learned in classes and 
enhances their opportunities in the labor market or in graduate 
school.

School of Business 

The School of Business emphasizes academic rigor and learning 
that bridges theory and practice. Because of our outstanding 
faculty and programs, our students graduate with a firm foun- 
dation for professional success. 

The programs in the School of Business are accredited by 
the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education 
(IACBE). A specialized accrediting body, lACBE's mission is to 
promote and support quality business education worldwide 
through accreditation and outcomes assessment. 

The structured major in accounting and finance offers curricula 
that prepare students for the rigorous examinations needed 
for professional certification as a Certified Public Accountant 
(CPA), Certified Management Accountant (CMA), Chartered 
Financial Analyst (CFA), or Certified Financial Planner (CFP). 
Bridgewater State College students frequently win statewide 
competitions and are often cited by the Massachusetts Society 
of CPAs for their excellent work. 

The FAA approved aviation science major is unique among 
public four-year institutions on the eastern seaboard of the 
United States and attracts numerous students from outside 
Massachusetts. The flight training concentration takes a 
student through commercial licensing and flight instructor 
certification. The aviation management concentration includes 
private pilot licensing and prepares students for careers with 
airlines, airports, aircraft companies, government agencies and 
other aviation support services. 



The bachelor of science program in economics prepares stu- 
dents to understand and apply the fundamentals of economic 
theory and analysis in today's global market economy. The 
curriculum guides economics majors in developing creative, 
analytical, and critical thinking skills and sound problem-solv- 
ing techniques, qualities that are highly valued in any profes- 
sional field. Students in the program have the opportunity

Accounting Concentration 

The accounting concentration prepares students for a variety 
of positions leading to management level careers in corporate 
and public accounting, auditing and taxation. This concentra- 
tion also assists in preparing students for the Certified Public 
Accountant (CPA) exam or the Certified Management Account- 
ing (CMA) exam. 

Note: The Massachusetts Board of Accountancy is changing the 
educational requirements to sit for the Uniform CPA examination 
in Massachusetts. Accordingly, this may result in changes within 
our accounting curriculum. 



Finance Concentration 

The finance concentration prepares students for positions in 
banking, investments, financial planning, cash management 
and international finance in both public and private institu- 
tions. This concentration also assists in preparing students for 
professional certifications such as the Certified Financial Plan- 
ner (CFP) or Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA). 

Grade Policy for Accounting and Finance Concentrations 

No more than two grades lower than C- in a required Account- 
ing and Finance course (ACFI prefix) will be applied toward 
fulfillment of the requirements for the accounting and finance 
major. This policy applies to students accepted for matriculation 
as freshmen or as transfer students enrolled for the fall 2002 
semester or thereafter. Students who receive more than two 
D's or F's in courses may continue as accounting and finance 
majors but must retake a sufficient number of the required 
courses in which the D's or F's were earned and earn a grade 
of C- or higher, so that no more than a total of two "ACFI" 
prefix required courses, with grades below C- will be counted 
towards fulfillment of the requirements in the accounting and 
finance major.

Bachelor of Science in Aviation Science 

The Department of Aviation Science offers a BS degree in 
Aviation Science with concentrations in flight training and 
aviation management. Graduates are prepared for entry into 
the aviation industry in productive, professional employment, 
or alternatively, for graduate study. 

Federal Aviation Administration Certification of Bridgewater 
State College, as a Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 141 
ground school, allows students to complete all required ground 
school courses at the college as part of the aviation science 
curriculum. Bridgewater State College is also designated by 
the Federal Aviation Administration as an Aviation Education 
Resource Center. 

The Bridgewater State College aviation science program incor- 
porates single engine and multi-engine flight simulator training 
into its flight training courses. For complete information on these 
programs, consult with the chairperson of the Department of 
Aviation Science. 



Flight Training Concentration* 

The flight training concentration combines academic studies 
and flight training, in order to prepare graduates for a wide 
variety of positions within the air transportation industry, 
including general, airline and military aviation 1 . The flight 
program allows the student to obtain private pilot, commercial 
pilot, instrument pilot and flight instructor certificates. 



The curriculum provides the flight training necessary to oper- 
ate in the high-density environment of modern airspace. The 
program emphasizes critical thinking and analytical skills, as 
well as oral and written communication skills. Effective resource 
management, human factors, and safety awareness are con- 
stantly emphasized throughout the curriculum. Complementing 
the intensive flight training is expert classroom instruction and 
use of flight simulators. A career in the flight training concentra- 
tion leads to the development, administration, and enforcement 
of safety regulations, including airworthiness and operational 
standards in civil aviation. This program prepares the graduate 
for a career path that starts as a certified flight instructor, and 
leads to positions with airlines and corporate flight departments. 

'Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) scholarship opportu- 
nities are available. The ROTC program is designed to give 
students the opportunity to become a military officer while 
completing a bachelor's degree program. See the department 
chairperson for details.

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Bachelor of Science in Management 

The management concentrations educate students for success- 
ful careers in business and management. The program provides 
general education, other liberal arts courses and specific man- 
agement education for students with career interests in general 
business, transportation, energy and environmental resources, 
marketing, global management, information systems, human 
resources and operations management. 

With a curriculum embedded in a strong liberal arts framework, 
students learn how business decisions relate to society - cul- 
turally, economically, ethically and socially - while developing 
the skills and knowledge that will enable them to assume 
management responsibilities. 

Students who enroll in the management program can gain 
experience through internships and courses that provide 



practical, on-the-job professional opportunities. These valuable 
learning experiences, coupled with the college's development 
as a regional resource for business and industry, offer students 
significant contact with business and management leaders.

SCHOOL OF EDUCATION AND ALLIED STUDIES 



School of Education and Allied Studies 



The School of Education and Allied Studies offers undergradu- 
ate and graduate programs for the professional preparation of 
early childhood, elementary, special education, middle and high 
school teachers, as well as for specialized positions in school and 
community-based organizations and agencies. All programs in the 
school are devoted to developing professionals who are committed 
to excellence, understand best practices and research and work col- 
laboratively in their chosen areas. The school also provides service to 
the schools, community organizations and agencies of the region. 
The school conducts an on-going review of professional standards 
and requirements in order to respond to the changing needs of the 
profession. Graduates of programs leading to initial licensure are 
ready to enter the profession of teaching. During advanced degree 
programs leading to the professional stage of licensure and other 
graduate course work, educators strengthen their leadership abili- 
ties and their commitment to lifelong learning. 

Extensive field experiences in schools and agencies contribute to the 
development of meaningful linkages between study and practice. 
Procedures and guidelines are implemented to ensure that high 
quality standards are maintained in field-based experiences and that 
students have experiences working in settings with diverse popula- 
tions of children and youth. 

Students following the curricula leading to a bachelor of science in 
education degree are prepared as early childhood, elementary or 
special needs teachers. Students majoring in early childhood educa- 
tion, elementary education or special education must complete 
an arts and sciences major (for special education (5-12), a major 
taught in grades 5-12), as well as a major in the School of Educa- 
tion and Allied Studies. Students majoring in most curricula leading 
to a bachelor of arts or a bachelor of science degree may select 
a minor in Secondary Education, which prepares them for middle 
school and/or high school teaching. Students majoring in physical 
education earn a bachelor of science or bachelor of arts degree.

to the Field Experience Office is Feb. 1 to student teach the fol- 
lowing fall and Sept. 30 to student teach the following spring. 

All practica are completed within the college's service area at 
centers and sites established by the School of Education and Allied 
Studies. Students are supervised by appropriately qualified faculty. 
In that the practica experiences are intense and rigorous, it is 
recommended that students not enroll in other courses during the 
semester that they student teach. 

Criminal Offender Record Inquires (CORI) are conducted by place- 
ment sites. An unsatisfactory CORI report is a reason for refusal of 
placement by the Bridgewater State College Office of Field Place- 
ment and cooperating school districts and agencies. 

Written complaints filed by schools or agencies relative to a student 
teacher will be reviewed by a committee from the School of Educa- 
tion and Allied Studies. In instances where the student teacher has 
not met the procedures, policies, standards and/or expectations of 
the college as set forth in this catalog, the Practicum Handbook 
and/or other college documents, the student may be removed from 
the assignment and the program. 



Admission to. Retention in and Exit from 
Professional Education Programs - MAT, 
MEd, CAGS 

All graduate students seeking licensure must formally apply, satisfy 
all selection criteria and be recommended for admission into profes- 
sional education programs in the School of Education and Allied 
Studies, and the School of Graduate Studies. 

The following requirements and criteria for admission to and reten- 
tion in licensure and degree programs in the School of Education 
and Allied Studies and the School of Graduate Studies have been 
established: 

1 . All students must be formally admitted to a graduate degree or 
licensure program by the School of Graduate Studies. 

2. Students must remain in good standing with the School of 
Graduate Studies and the School of Education arid Allied Studies. 



Substitutions/Waivers for Licensure 

Undergraduate and graduate students with prior courses and/or 
experiences which are equivalent to or exceed those required in a 
particular state approved program may request a substitution by 
way of their academic adviser through their department. Students 
should contact their adviser for a copy of this institutional process. 
Grades of D and F cannot be used. This procedure is for licensure 
standards only; consult the major department for degree require- 
ments. 



Professional Education Review Process 

A student who experiences a problem pertaining to program 
waiver, licensure or other matters may request consideration under 
the School of Education and Allied Studies' established review 
process. 

The first step is for the student to submit a written appeal to his 
or her adviser. If the situation cannot be resolved at this level, the 
student and/or adviser will then proceed to the department chair- 
person or graduate coordinator. Should the student's situation not 
be resolved, then the student may petition the dean of the School 
of Education and Allied Studies for review. The dean, at his or her 
discretion, may convene a review board to hear the appeal. 



Licensure Application 

Students wishing to apply for their Massachusetts Department of 
Education initial educator's license will obtain application instruc- 
tions during the Educator Licensure/Career Services Meeting 

scheduled each semester during a student's initial internship/practi- 
cum. Bridgewater State College participates in the Department 
of Education's online Educator Licensure and Recruitment system 
(ELAR). Candidates can access ELAR via the following web address: 
www.doe.mass.edu/educators/e_license.html. 

BSC program completers seeking licensure through the ELAR sys- 
tem must fill out a Request for Recommendation Form and submit 
it to the Office of Professional Education. 

Candidates applying for professional licensure should meet with 
the licensure coordinator in the School of Education and Allied 
Studies during their last semester of coursework at the college to 
review requirements and application procedures. 

All candidates seeking Massachusetts Educator Licensure are re- 
quired at the time of application to sign an affidavit indicating that 
they have not been convicted of and are not under charges for any 
crime (misdemeanor or felony) and have not been identified by any 
child protection agency as a perpetrator of child abuse.

General Admission Criteria for the Counseling

do not exclude students based on any one criterion. Students 
must submit a complete application by Oct. 1 for a spring 
semester admission and March 1 for a summer/fall semester

college, there are general admission criteria for counseling that 
are based on state and national standards outlined below. 
Specific program admission requirements are identified under 
individual program options on the following pages.

Counselor Education 



The counselor education faculty actively seeks to recruit ap- 
plicants with diverse backgrounds. 

Counseling Program Planning 

All accepted students must attend an orientation for new 
students and meet with their faculty adviser upon acceptance. 

Prospective candidates who have not been formally accepted 
into the program are urged to confine their selection of courses 
to the four "core" courses (CNGC 510, CNGC 528, CNGC 529, 
CNGC 500). 

The Department of Counselor Education takes very seriously its 
responsibility and commitment to train professional and ethical 
counselors, and to "protect the public good". Faculty are com- 
mitted to supporting student success, and providing remedial 
interventions, when needed. However, the department also 
recognizes that there will be a small number of students for 
whom it becomes clear that transitioning out of the program 
is necessary. The department has written a Learning Contract, 
which reflects ACA ethical standards, college guidelines, 
department expectations and requirements, as well as the 
procedures which will be followed in response to academic, 
personal, and /or professional student-related concerns which 
may arise. During the new student orientation experience, 
the department's Learning Contract will be reviewed and 
discussed with all students; students will sign and receive a 
hard copy of the contract. Students must sign and receive a 
copy of the Learning Contract to continue to take courses as a 
matriculated student. The contract will also be posted on each 
of the department's program-specific Blackboard virtual sites. 
A signed copy will be put in the student's file at the School of 
Graduate Studies. 

Students must receive a grade of B- or higher in each graduate 
course or fieldwork experience; students who receive a grade 
lower than a B- must repeat the course. In addition, students 
who receive a grade of "F" in any course will be dismissed 
from the program. Lastly, students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 
or they will be placed on academic probation as outlined in the 
graduate student handbook. 

Field Work Experiences 

Field experiences (e.g., practicum or internship) are required 
of all matriculated students. Depending on the counseling 
program, students complete between 700 and 1000 hours of 
supervised field work experience. Each student, in conjunc- 
tion with an academic adviser, selects an appropriate site and 
is supervised by an on-site professional while meeting with 
a Bridgewater State College faculty member for a field work 
seminar. Most importantly, students must submit a field work 
application to the field work director to participate in any field 
work experience. Field work applications must be completed by 
April 1 for the fall and summer semesters and by November 1 for 
the spring semester. 



Comprehensive Examinations 

Written comprehensive examinations are administered in No- 
vember and March. The examination, which requires integrating 
theory and practice in the student's matriculated counselor 
education program is taken during the student's field work 
experience. Previous examinations are on the various counsel- 
ing programs Blackboard sites.

Bachelor of Science in Education 
Elementary Education (1-6) 

Students who wish to be elementary teachers are required to 
select a major in elementary education as well as a major in the 
liberal arts or sciences. A major in liberal arts or sciences is a 
requirement of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

Students must apply for admission and be accepted into profes- 
sional education after completion of ELED 220 Introduction to 
Elementary Education and before the professional semester. ELED 
220 is the only education course in which students can enroll 
prior to official acceptance into a professional education program. 

The state of Massachusetts requires three Massachusetts Tests 
for Educational Licensure® (MTEL) for Elementary licensure: 
Communication and Literacy, General Curriculum (Elementary) 
and the Foundations of Reading. Beginning in the fall semester of 
2007, all three of these exams must be passed as a prerequisite 
to professional semester courses. 

All matriculated undergraduate elementary education degree- 
seeking students must take the professional semester as a block 
of courses and must register with the department. These courses 
are usually taken the semester prior to student teaching. 

All undergraduate students seeking licensure must consult the 
section of this catalog entitled "School of Education and Allied 
Studies" for information pertaining to admission to a professional 
education program and the State Regulations for the Licensure of 
Educational Personnel and important institutional deadlines. 

Students must complete 80 hours of prepractica experience. A 40- 
hour experience is attached to the course ELED 220. An additional 
40 hours is attached to the professional courses. Undergraduates 
who are not taking these courses together in a professional block 
must meet with their professor to plan appropriate prepractica 
experiences. 

After completing all education methods courses, students must 
complete a full-time, semester-long student teaching experience 
in a local school under the joint supervision of a college supervi- 
sor and a supervising practitioner. 

Students successfully completing the program are eligible to apply 
for initial Massachusetts licensure in elementary education (1-6). 

This program has been approved by the Massachusetts Depart- 
ment of Education and includes licensure reciprocity with signa- 
tory states under the Interstate Certification Compact.

or without Disabilities (PreK-2) (Department 
I of Education Public School Licensure) 

Students who wish to be early childhood teachers are required to 
select a major in early childhood education as well as a major in 
the liberal arts or sciences. A major in liberal arts or sciences is a 
requirement of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

The Department of Elementary and Early Childhood Education 
offers a major in early childhood education for public school licen- 
sure, which enables the student to prepare for career opportuni- 
ties with young children from infancy through age 8. Students are 
provided with professional preparation in understanding stages 
of child growth and development, curriculum planning, teaching 
procedures and program evaluation. 

Students seeking public school licensure must apply for admission 
and be accepted into professional education after completion of 
ECED 230 and before the professional semester. ECED 230 is the 
only education course in which students can enroll prior to official 
acceptance into a professional education program. 

The state of Massachusetts requires three Massachusetts Tests for 
Educational Licensure® (MTEL) for Early Childhood PreK-K (public 
school) licensure: Communication and Literacy, Early Childhood 
and the Foundations of Reading. Beginning in the fall semester of 
2007, all three of these exams must be passed as a prerequisite 
to professional semester courses. 

All matriculated day students seeking this Early Childhood Educa- 
tion degree must take the professional semester as a block of 
courses and must register with the department. These courses 
are usually taken the semester prior to student teaching. Part- 
time students should contact the department concerning special 
' scheduling arrangements. 

Students seeking professional licensure should consult the section 
of this catalog entitled "School of Education and Allied Studies" 
for professional education admission and retention information 
and important institutional deadlines. 

Students must complete 80 hours of prepractica experience. 
A 40-hour experience is attached to the course ECED 230, 1 5 
hours at a pieschnol or kindergarten level and 25 hours at the 
kindergarten or primary level. An additional 40 hours is attached 
to the professional courses. Undergraduates who are not taking 
these courses together in a professional block must meet with 
their professor to plan appropriate prepractica experiences. 

After completing all education professional courses, students 
must complete a full-time, semester long student teaching experi- 
ence in a local school under the joint supervision of a college 
supervisor and a supervising practitioner. 



Students successfully completing this program will be eligible to 
meet Commonwealth of Massachusetts teacher initial licensure 
requirements for the Early Childhood Teacher of Students with or 
without Disabilities (PreK-2) license. 

The following courses are required to complete the early child- 
hood education major:

Early Education and Care (PreK-K) Concen- 
tration (Department of Early Education and 
Care Certification) 

The Department of Elementary and Early Childhood Education 
offers a concentration in Early Education and Care (PreK-K) which 
enables students to prepare for career opportunities with young 
children from infancy to age six. Students are provided with profes- 
sional preparation in understanding the developmental stages of 
very young children, effective curriculum planning, teaching meth- 
odology and program evaluation. 

The concentration in Early Education and Care (PreK-K) requires a 
2.5 GPA in the major and does not lead to public school licensure. 
This concentration will meet all current and projected requirements 
of the Department of Early Education and Care. This concentration 
does not require a second major or passing the Massachusetts 
Tests for Educational Licensure® (MTEL), as is the case with public 
school licensure. 

The following courses are required to complete the Early Childhood 
major with a concentration in Early Education and Care (PreK-K).

Health Education 
Health Education Major 

Health education can lead to the improved hearth status of individu- 
als, families and communities. It involves the use of systematic strate- 
gies to improve health knowledge, attitudes, skills and behaviors. 
Health educators work in schools, public health agencies, voluntary 
nonprofit organizations, hospitals, colleges and universities, business 
and industries. 

The 44-credit health education major is designed to 
guide students though learning experiences that emphasize the mul- 
tiple dimensions of health, and draws on the behavioral and natural 
sciences as well as health science and public health. The major 
prepares students to design, implement, and evaluate scientifically 
and methodologically sound health education experiences, and to 
equip students with the professional skills that will enable them to 
be proficient practitioners. 

Students wishing to pursue teaching licensure in health/family and 
consumer sciences must meet the criteria for admission to profes- 
sional education programs as well as declare a minor in secondary 
education. Those interested in teacher licensure should refer to the 
"Secondary Education and Professional Programs" section of this

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

All courses are structured to address the transition toward the 
contemporary concerns of human development, diversity, equity 
and ethics. The learner is regarded as one who has an active role 
in constructing his/her knowledge base, values and attitudes. The 
varied cultural backgrounds of students and teachers are seen 
as a positive context in which one can listen, consider and learn. 
The department sees its role as interactive with other education 
departments and with the School of Arts and Sciences, address- 
ing joint missions and fostering the development of curriculum, 
methodologies and perspectives that enhance the individual and 
society. 

All students who intend to become licensed educators must 
apply for admission and be accepted into professional educa- 
tion through the School of Education and Allied Studies. All 
students seeking licensure must consult the section of this catalog 
entitled "School of Education and Allied Studies" for information 
pertaining to the state regulations for the licensure of educational 
personnel and important institutional deadlines. 

Students are advised to check the secondary education and 
preprofessional programs Web site periodically at

Bridgewater itself has the Microbook Library of American Civiliza- 
tion and the PCMI humanities collection. 

A student wishing to pursue a minor in American studies will 
ordinarily be assigned an adviser from the American Studies Com- 
mittee, and will be expected to take the following sequence of 
courses in the sophomore, junior and senior years:

knowledge and understanding of civic leadership and community 
engagement, communication and advocacy, management and 
organizational behavior, local and regional affairs, economic

Ethnic Studies Minor 

Ethnic Studies is an interdisciplinary minor program addressing 
issues of racial and ethnic diversity in the United States. Courses 
are offered in the fields of literature, history, anthropology, 
sociology, social work, special education, among other disciplines. 
Focusing on both comparative and case studies of race and 
ethnicity, students examine issues of cultural identity from the 
perspectives of people of color and heritage cultures. By calling 
attention to discrimination, prejudice and other inequalities 
against racial and ethnic groups, this program seeks to contribute 
to the education of diversity and social justice in multicultural 
America. 

Students choose six courses (18 credits), of which at least two 
courses (6 credits) must be from Group A: Comparative Study 
of Race and Ethnicity, and at least two courses (6 credits) from 
Group B: Study of Racial and Ethnic Groups. Students may also

Oceanography 

Courses related to oceanography are offered as a cooperative ef- 
fort of the Departments of Biological Sciences, Chemical Sciences, 
Geography and Physics. This emphasis is designed to prepare 
students for graduate studies in oceanography. 

Most graduate schools of oceanography require an undergradu- 
ate major in biology, chemistry, earth sciences or physics. All 
students interested in an oceanography program should major 
in one of these disciplines. Graduate schools of oceanography 
expect students to include most of the following courses (or com- 
parable ones) in their undergraduate programs: Calculus I and II, 
Chemical Principles I and II, Quantitative Analysis, General Physics 
I and II, Biology I, Biology II, Marine Biology, Physical Geology, 
Biological Oceanography and Physical Oceanography. 

These courses, together with one of the majors indicated above, 
provide the basic foundation for further study in one of the four 
principal branches of oceanography: biological oceanography, 
chemical oceanography, geological oceanography and physi- 
cal oceanography. A student who is interested in oceanogra- 
phy should consult both his/her major adviser and one of the 
oceanography advisers before registering for courses in his/her 
freshman year or as soon as possible thereafter. Oceanography 
advisers are: Dr. Peter Saccocia (Earth Sciences); Dr. Frank Gorga 
(Chemistry); Dr. John Jahoda (Biology). 

Pre-Medical, Pre-Dental, Pre-Veterinary 
and Other Medically Oriented Professions 

The Department of Biological Sciences can advise any college stu- 
dent interested in most of the medically oriented professions such 
as pre-medical, dental, veterinary, physical therapy, osteopathic, 
chiropractic, podiatry and physician's assistant, as to recommend- 
ed courses for each area, professional schools' requirements, how 
to apply and how to prepare for the MCAT, DAT, VCAT and GRE, 
where applicable. Pertinent information and guidance is available 
through the pre-medical adviser, Dr. Merideth Krevosky, in the 
Department of Biological Sciences.

Women's and Gender Studies Minor 

Women's and gender studies at Bridgewater State College was 
established in 1983, and is part of a rapidly growing course of 
study nationwide. Women's and gender studies is an interdis- 
ciplinary minor which combines the analytical tools of different 
disciplines such as anthropology, psychology, sociology, literature, 
history, philosophy, etc., when studying the world. 

Women's and gender studies is dedicated to the study of women 
and gender. Gender is the idea of difference between the sexes, 
and all the assumptions, stereotypes and expectations that 
accompany these ideas. The minor looks at women and gender 
issues around the world, but since gender does not give a full un- 
derstanding to women's lives, we consider other factors such as 
race, class, culture and sexuality. The minor combines these tools 
and areas of interest into what we call an "integrative analysis." 
The objective is to introduce students to analytical tools and basic 
approaches to the study of women in a variety of fields. 

Students in the women's and gender studies have found that a 
minor in women's and gender studies enhances their major cur-

Core Curriculum Requirement Notations 

Courses designated as satisfying Core Curriculum 
requirements are noted as such in the course

of the catalog. For a listing of Core Curriculum 
requirements and the academic categories under 
which they fall, please refer to the "Undergraduate 
Academic Programs" section of this catalog. 

Prerequisite Notations 

Prerequisites, if any, are indicated in the course 
description. Students must have the necessary pre- 
requisite for each course. Prerequisites are indicated 
with the individual course listing and are enforced 
at the time of registration. Prerequisite courses 
taken at institutions other than Bridgewater State 
College must be documented (transcript or grade 
report, and in some cases course description) prior 
to registration. 

Students who wish to enroll in a course without the 
prerequisite(s) must obtain a Prerequisite Override 
form prior to registering for the course. The form 
must be signed by the chairperson of the depart- 



ment through which the course is offered and, in

Semester Notations 

In some course descriptions, a semester designa- 
tion indicating when the course can normally be 
expected to be offered is noted. This information is 
provided to assist students and their advisers in plan- 
ning their programs. Please note, however, that all 
course listings published are subject to change, and 
that the college reserves the right to cancel courses 
or sections with inadequate enrollment. 

Former Course Number Notations 

Some courses have had a recent change in their 
course number. The former number is noted in the 
course description. Credit will not be given for a 
course repeated under a different number. 

Cross-Listed Courses 

In some cases, a course in one discipline may be 
cross-listed with another course in a different 
discipline. Course descriptions will be listed under 
each course prefix in the appropriate discipline. For 
example, EC0N/P0LI 340 Law and Economics will be 
listed under ECON (Economics) and POLI (Political 
Science). Students may enroll in such courses under 
either discipline, but not both.

Courses offered during evening hours 
normally meet once a week for a full semester or 
a quarter. Unless specified otherwise, day session
